Help Save Our Nation!
  By George T. B. Davis.
Excerpted from
Sunday School Times.


    Daniel Webster declared: "If we abide by the principles taught in the Bible, our country will go on prospering and to prosper; but if we and our posterity neglect its instruction and authority, no man can tell how sudden a catastrophe may overcome us, and bury all our glory in profound obscurity."

    What is the one thing that will save our country from disaster in this hour of deadly peril? It is earnest supplication to Almighty God with wholehearted repentance!

    May I make a practical suggestion: great numbers of those who read these lines should set apart five minutes each morning for intercessory prayer for our nationís president [or prime minister], for the members of congress [or parliament], for the judges and for other leaders, that they may turn to the Lord and seek His wisdom and make decisions for the good of our country. Let us also pray for Godís blessing on pastors, parents, teachers and students in our schools.

    You could render real service by uniting your family in prayer for repentance and revival in our country. You can also encourage your pastor to have a time of prayer for our country in the Sunday morning or evening service. Perhaps you could arrange to meet with a few friends or neighbors each week to pray that our country may return to God and not be destroyed. Personal and united prayer and repentance will do more to save our country than all the armaments and peace conferences can ever accomplish. Therefore, let us set ourselves to pray! Ė
