“Suppose a nation…should take the Bible for their only law Book, and every member should regulate his conduct by the precepts there exhibited! Every member would be obliged in conscience, to temperance, frugality, and industry; to justice, kindness, and charity towards his fellow men; and to piety, love, and reverence toward Almighty God … What a Eutopia, what a Paradise would this region be.”
Diary and Autobiography of John Adams, Vol. III, p. 9.

“Turn us again to yourself, O Lord God of Heaven’s armies. Make your face shine down upon us. Only then will we be saved.” Psalm 80:19

Against love there is no law. Love never fails. May the Lord bless the United States of America and each individual living here with His love and may His love permeate every person until we all learn how to love one another. With the force of love at work here, we could change the world, feed the world, heal the world, conquer fear, generate prosperity, and establish opportunity for every person to thrive, young and old alike.

Our Father,

I return to You. I make it my intention to enter into intimate relationship with you. 

I will watch and study how you taught your disciples to live their lives, interact with others and the world.

I will follow what you have taught. Teach me how to love, heal, give, forgive, reach out to the needy, and obey You.

Please open doors for all to receive the blessings you have to offer.

Amen

“I will show you what it’s like when someone comes to me, listens to my teaching, and then follows it. It is like a person building a house who digs deep and lays the foundation on solid rock. When the floodwaters rise and break against that house, it stands firm because it is well built.” Luke 6:47,48
