A still, small voice."

In times of desperation, America has always turned to God in prayer. The First Continental Congress prayed for God’s guidance and protection as they sought independence from a tyrannical king. Abraham Lincoln called the nation to prayer when our nation was engaged in a great Civil War. President Roosevelt prayed with the nation as American and Allied troops were landing in Normandy on June 6, 1944 to deliver a suffering humanity from under the Nazi terror. When America was attacked on 9/11/2001, our nation turned to God in prayer.
On this, the tenth anniversary of the attacks of 9/11, our nation is in need of God’s help and direction. Pray for America and vote your values. Christians need to participate in this great American Republic. If you are not registered to vote, take this opportunity today and register. The Ohio Christian Alliance provides non-partisan voter education materials, candidate scorecards, and candidate forums to help inform people of faith on the important issues of our day.
It was John Adams, that great American patriot who stated, “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people; it is wholly inadequate for the governance of any other.” John Adams also warned his generation, “A constitution of government once changed from freedom, can never be restored. Liberty once lost, is lost forever.” Thomas Jefferson stated, “If a nation expects to be ignorant and free in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be.” We as Christians are called at this poignant moment in our nation’s history to stand up and be counted. Pray for your country and vote your values.
