WHAT DOES AMERICA NEED FROM YOU TODAY more than anything else? Your country needs you to pray for God's will to be done in the lives of all Americans.
When the disciples of Jesus asked Him to teach them to pray, He said two things. First, He said "Your Father knows what you need before you ask Him." Then He said, "Pray in this way." What followed was the prayer we know today as "The Lord's Prayer."
Jesus told us to understand who we were praying to: "Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name." God is the Supreme Being of the entire universe; He lives in heaven where He can see and know all that is happening in the universe, because He created that universe. And He is holy. Terrifyingly holy. God's standard in all things is the highest and best and truest truth.
Then Jesus told us to direct our prayer to God with one solitary focus: "Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven." If God knows what is best for us without us having to ask Him for it, then all we really need to ask is that God be willing to give us that best. We need to trust that He loves us and wants what is best for us, and that He will provide us with His best in any and all circumstances.
One of the things that makes Heaven so special is that it is the only place where God's will is ALWAYS done. God's best in all circumstances is for His will to be done.
(There's an old joke that tells us "Want to make God laugh? Tell Him YOUR plans." We'll save that one for another day.) *
Today, however, we are so far away from God's best in our daily living that it's hard to imagine how we could get any further away from that best. Wouldn't you agree?
WHY DO WE CONTINUE TO FIGHT AGAINST EACH OTHER, trying to impose our will on them while they are trying to impose their will on us? From God's perspective (He's a God of love, remember) fighting wars today must look pretty stupid when we are as advanced a civilization as we think we are. The Bible's advice is to "Love your neighbor as yourself."
Do you remember how rancorous and stupid the recent impeachment procedure got? No matter what any Republicans said about it, no matter how they tried to guide it, and regardless of what the actual evidence was, the response from Democrats was always "Trump did something very wrong. We know it because we can see it. We don't know why you can't see it, because it's right there where anybody can see it."
As it turned out, Special Counsel Robert Mueller couldn't see it either. The whole Russian collusion issue and the impeachment surrounding it fell apart completely. Some Democrats persist to this day in insisting that justice was not served, that President Trump is guilty of something, and all we need is a willingness to investigate until we can find something that fits our suspicions. And, of course, a never-ending supply of money to get us to that goal. "Never mind what we were elected to do, which is to make this a better country to live in. We're far too busy for such mundane things. We have to Save The World, and unfortunately nobody knows how to do that except us." This high and mighty goal would look much loftier if politicians did not resort to such pettiness in reaching for it.
MAYBE YOU'RE SOMEBODY WHO DOESN'T BELIEVE IN GOD. (You should...He believes in YOU.) You've never read the Bible because it can't possibly be true. Too many trans-lations. Too many errors. Too many miracles. Too many pages. Too many "thou shalt nots."
God says He inspired the Bible, from first page to last. The Bible cannot be both true and false. It has to be one or the other. If there is anything in it which is provably false, then the entire book is not true, is it? (People have been trying for centuries to prove the Bible is not true, and no one has succeeded yet. No one. In fact, the more archeologists continue to dig up the past, the more true the Bible becomes as more and more artifacts are found which prove its truth.)
There are people telling us that even the COVID-19 virus is false. Why? Because it was made in a laboratory in China through research paid for by Obama's Deep State, then it was released on the same day that the false impeachment effort failed. The purpose of the virus was to impose a lock-down, and the lockdown was necessary in order to manipulate and control society.
US total population is now about 331,000,000. (331 million.) The US has now seen well over 130,000 COVID-19 deaths and the total is still climbing. All this occurred during a very restrictive lockdown covering the entire country. Japan, on the other hand, a nation whose population has yet to reach 130 million and with most of those people living in close proximity to each other, has not yet seen a total of even 1,000 deaths from the Coronavirus. Nor have they been subjected to any lockdown. (Do a little research to learn more about these facts.)
The Deep State appears to be manipulating society worldwide in order to make people demand a solution to the pandemic, which will of course be a hurried-to-market vaccine which will show many varying degrees of success in combating the virus. The ultimate goal is nothing less than mindless submission of as many people as possible. If we will submit to a vaccine in the hope of regaining our normal lives, we will then also submit to what the Bible calls "the mark of the beast."
Stand up, speak up, and do what you can to confront and hold back the evil which is trying to drive all of us into submission. But don't attempt to do anything alone. Ask God to direct you, to guide your every step. Tell Him you want His will to be done, and not your own. This is critical! Jesus recognized as His crucifixion approached that He absolutely HAD to have God's power within Him to strengthen Him. He relied on His Father's guiding hand every day, but with a death then looming in which Jesus would be required to take upon Himself all of the world's sinfulness, He could only say to God the Father, "Not My will, but Yours be done." This is also what YOU must say when you confront the evil that is going to grow huge and obvious in the days ahead.

Do you know where the word "politics" comes from?
It's actually a combination of two words. The first part,
POLI, comes from the Latin and means "many." And the
second part? Well, we all know that ticks are just nasty
