The ‘National Day of Prayer’ Is, By and Large, A Farce

It reminds me of the words of God through Jeremiah-

“You steal. You murder. You commit adultery. You lie when you swear on oath. You sacrifice to the god Baal. You pay allegiance to other gods whom you have not previously known. Then you come and stand in my presence in this temple I have claimed as my own and say, “We are safe!” You think you are so safe that you go on doing all those hateful sins! (Jer. 7:9-10)

Americans seem to think that they can despise immigrants and rip off their neighbors in shady business deals and deny basic care to their neighbors and their children and spend their money on vices and sins and shoot each other in Churches and Synagogues and Mosques and theaters and malls and schools and it’s all ok as long as they flip a blob of mucus foaming from their cursing mouths on the ‘day of prayer’ in God’s direction.  What absurdity.  What God requires is repentance and righteousness, not lip service.

Wake up, America.  Wake.  Up.
