Only a spiritual revival can restore soundness of mind, body and soul to a people who’ve become so corrupted. Pray that God, in His mercy, will take the remnant of praying people, humble us, hear our prayers and heal our land. Like a thief who can only know the severity of his behavior when brought to justice and sentenced in proportion to his crime, so only a merciful God can reveal how destructive our society has become in being unmoored from the essentials of liberty; those self-evident truths for which our founding, godly, virtuous founders pledged their lives, fortunes and sacred honor. May God raise up leaders of that calibre in our day while restoring a sound mind to We The People!
