“These are the times that try men’s souls: The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value.” -Thomas Paine
Many in our area are praying and fasting tomorrow (Saturday) for the urgent crisis we are facing in Congress. Please consider joining us!
“Therefore also now, saith the LORD, turn ye even to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning: And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto the LORD your God: for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth him of the evil. Who knoweth if he will return and repent, and leave a blessing behind him…”
Thank you so much for the reminder to be praying for our nation, Grace!
BTW, I haven’t commented yet on your blog, but just wanted to tell you that it’s a blessing to me. Your posts always put a smile on my face. =)
We’re fasting/praying tomorrow along with you. May the Lord have mercy!
Tell Stephen that is an awesome picture. 🙂
Good, good thoughts, Grace. Thank you for the reminder…
Fasting and praying as well. Thanks for this good post.
