We are in an economic crisis is this country. I have spent the last couple of days reading article after article from supposed ‘experts’ with ideas about how we can get out of this mess. All vastly different.
The Bush administration has come up with a proposal that could do the job for now, but with little assurances that it would not result in trouble for the future.
In the middle of a presidential election, and also one where the Congress and some of the Senate are running for re-election in November, is probably the worst possible time for politicians to think about the welfare and the future of the country. This is a time when partisan politics is in full bloom with each party trying to hang the problems on the other. They are both to blame.
Nevertheless, the situation not only demands quick action, but also the right stuff. Politics needs to be put aside for a few days and a bi-partisan solution needs to be hammered out.
I have also read several prophecies (I will not link them) from different prophetic ministers warning that we are at a cross-roads where the whole thing could come down like a house of cards–unless Christians intercede. The bottom line, we really do need to pray.
We need to pray for our leaders that they would quit their usual party bickering and come together.
We need to pray that the Holy Spirit will inspire some of the best and most influential leaders with long-term solutions to the problems before us–a more permanent set of solutions which will not only solve today’s problems but not create different ones for the future.
We need to pray that our leaders will actually be humble and accept inspiration from God—-and we need to pray that there will be time to get it all together. *Top
