Some of the prayers and calls for repentance that I have heard within the church or at prayer events seem to be a rending of garments. An outward show to impress. Often the pleading seems to be contrived and hollow, instead of broken-hearted and contrite.
Only God knows those who are rending their hearts as they seek Him. But I am led to ask myself…how truly serious am I about seeking God on behalf of our nation? When was the last time I fasted and wept and mourned and confessed the sin of our nation as though it were my own? I believe the future of America hangs on the answer to that question.
