Psalm 28: Petition and Thanksgiving
To you, Lord, I call;
my Rock, do not be deaf to me.
If you fail to answer me,
I will join those who go down to the pit.
Hear the sound of my pleading when I cry to you,
lifting my hands toward your holy place.
Do not drag me off with the wicked,
with those who do wrong,
Who speak peace to their neighbors
though evil is in their hearts.
Repay them for their deeds,
for the evil that they do.
For the work of their hands repay them;
give them what they deserve.
They pay no heed to the Lord’s works,
to the deeds of God’s hands.
God will tear them down,
never to be rebuilt.
Blessed be the Lord,
who has heard the sound of my pleading.
The Lord is my strength and my shield,
in whom my heart trusted and found help.
So my heart rejoices;
with my song I praise my God.
Lord, you are the strength of your people,
the saving refuge of your anointed king.
Save your people, bless your inheritance;
feed and sustain them forever!
In two days, Americans will vote in the most important election of our lifetime. At stake is not just our present and future, but the future of our children and grandchildren and, given the power of the U.S.A., of the world as well.
No one is perfect, as only God is perfect. Like each and every one of us, Governor Mitt Romney is imperfect. That being said, the differences between Gov. Romney and the present occupant of the Oval Office are significant, many, and profoundly important. I was not a supporter of Gov. Romney during the GOP primaries, mainly because I didn’t bother to actually know him. Since then, I’d corrected my sin of omission and, the more I see, hear, and read about Gov. Romney, the more I appreciate him. I have grown to love this man.
I believe Gov. Romney not only has the proven intelligence, knowledge, and strength to restore our economy, more importantly he is a good man with kind eyes who wants to be President for the right reason.
In contrast from the present White House occupant who goads his supporters by appealing to the worst in them, asking them to “vote for revenge,” Gov. Romney has spent millions of his own money, and his time, energy, sweat and tears every hour, every week, and every day for countless months for one simple reason:
Because he LOVES America
and is as worried and heartsick as we are about her future under the present occupant and his Godless party.
This is not just a political battle, this is at root a spiritual war, “for our struggle is not with flesh and blood but with the principalities, with the powers, with the world rulers of this present darkness, with the evil spirits in the heavens.”
Please pray, pray, pray with all your strength — that Mitt Romney wins the presidency next Tuesday, that the GOP (an imperfect but God-fearing party) wins a majority in the Senate and retains a majority in the House.
Please pray for God’s mercy. Please pray that God still bless America.
