Please pray for our country. Pray that as christians we would humble ourselves before God to forgive our sins and ask for His blessing once again on our nation. Pray that as christians we would reach out to the lost and that lives would be changed throughout our country for now and eternity. We want our grandchildren to grow up in a free America like we have had for so many years. This will only happen if we as christians do our part and share the gospel and live like we really do love God. Sometimes when I see christians around the country and the things we do I am so grieved. No wonder God withholds his blessings.
This fall our state is suppose to have a marriage ammendment vote on the ballot. There is much opposition to this not only from our own secretary of state who has changed the wording for the ballot from what it was suppose to read to businesses that are using their money to fight it. One of these companies is General Mills. You've probably bought their cereal or something quite a few times. May I ask you to stop buying their products? These products include Hagen Dazs, Nature Valley, Cheerios, Wheaties, Betty Crocker, Cheerieos, Pillsbury, Lucky Charms, Yoplait, and lots more. Until they change their stance we need to show how we feel by not buying their products. I often sigh at boycotts of products because I wonder if it does any good. But this hits so close to home. This is my state. My children's state and my grandchildren's state.
If you're like me and you look at this country you get a tired feeling. It seems like so much has been done to save it and yet we keep slidding towards socialism or worse. I get tired of being asked for money to fight wrong. I get tired of hearing from candidates that really are good. A boycott doesn't seem like much but it is something I can do. May I encourage you to do something? Will you pray?
