For the Christian who has been paying even minimal attention to the state of our union and its current crappy condition, it’s easy to see that our nation is in deep weeds from a God blessed standpoint.

We’re pretty much past the point of no return. If you don’t believe me, read this book. We’re in trouble, folks—and on every front. Our kids will be particularly screwed.

Yep, from an economic, political, cultural and spiritual perspective, if something is not done to reverse this nation’s course (and muy pronto) then my advice to you is to start taking yoga because one has to be fairly limber, I hear, to kiss one’s own butt good-bye. Oh, and another “suggestion” would be to teach your kids Chinese, TexMex and Farsi because those’ll be the main languages of the conquered on our continent.

If things do not change both dramatically and quickly (and to be specific, amended back to our God-honoring intent and constitutional infrastructure) then this country will cease to be the greatest experiment in self governance this planet has ever seen and will morph into a godless tourist spot driven by socialists wet nursing entitlement freaks. Greece is the word.

-No civilization has lasted long when there was:

-This kind of insane debt and spending,

-A bizarre notion of entitlement,

-A death of faith,

-A degeneration of morals,

-A collapse of civility,

-A paralysis of the will,

-A decline in native born population,

-And unopposed foreign invasion.

Google it if you don’t believe me, as the aforementioned is well known 411 regarding formerly great nations that have devolved into tacky travel destinations.

Hey, America: We’re not invincible. I know it looks like it, but believe it or not, there have been powerful civilizations that are now a cartoon of what they used to be, and it would be the height of hubris to think that this party will never end no matter what we do.

So, what’s a Christian to do? Well, there’s a lot the brethren can do, but to keep this column short I’m going to focus on the power of prayer for the USA. And when I say “prayer” I mean praying for our nation like you’d pray if you were wearing Lady Gaga’s meat dress and had to pass through a pride of peckish lions in the Matetsi.

With the Bible as a guide I say we pull out the prayer of Jabez found in 1 Chronicles 4:9-10 and shout it up to heaven for God to rain His favor back down on the States.
