Keller: We can always turn to prayer

I believe, and most will agree, that we are now experiencing what the Bible says in Matthew 24: 6-8, “And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.”

America is not the same country as when I grew up. We are not one nation under God. We have ceased to be a Christian nation.

Christians have allowed abortion to be legalized and same-sex marriages to be acceptable and promoted.

Whoever thought we would live to see two such people as we have now seeking the highest office in these United States?

We no longer have leaders with integrity.

A few days ago, I read in Psalm 9: 15, 16, 17, 19, 20, “The nations have sunk down in the pit which they made; in the net which they hid, their own foot is caught. The Lord is known by the judgment He executes; the wicked is snared in the work of his own hands.

“The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God. Arise, O Lord, do not let man prevail; let the nations be judged in Your sight. Put them in fear, O Lord, that the nations may know themselves to be but men.”

Keep in mind that this was written 2,000 years ago and was a warning to what America has become.

Should Christians allow themselves to be discouraged and lose hope? I think not.

It’s times like these that God will allow our light to shine more in such a dark world.

With all the warnings to us in the Bible, we also have the solution in II Chronicles 7: 14, “If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”
