Praying for the Election


Garden skills have been passed down from generation to 
generation in Beth's family. She worked by her mother's side
 as a young girl.

Now, Caleb has learned a lot this summer by helping his 
mom in her backyard garden. He planted these carrots and 
now he is eating his produce. 

He also dressed himself that morning.  Since they didn't have

the same inalienable rights. We all need a chance to learn and
 grow in freedom.  I pray also that we will study to know the
 issues and that you, Father, will provide us with the wisdom
 to make choices that will be for the good of our country.

As we see  countries over the world going bankrupt and not 
having adequate funds, help us understand why that is
 happening and how to avoid it ourselves...not only  on a 
personal level but on a national level as well.

We are not alone in this pursuit of truth. Thousands of Christians 
gathered Saturday on Independence Mall in Philadelphia to pray for 
the future of the United States in the weeks before the upcoming
