Didn’t our Lord’s Prayer tell us to pray “deliver us from evil”? “Us” in this statement is a call for a community to pray. But since 2009 when the president said we are no longer a Christian nation, we have continued to divorce ourselves from our religious roots. So every time bad people do bad things, how can we in good conscience ask for deliverance since we in America have eliminated God from the public square?

Can we summon our best advocate and friend back when we have kicked him out? Most assuredly we can, with individual prayer for forgiveness and a sincere heart. We need mercy that we don’t deserve. We need to bless GOD, America, not “GOD bless America,” to get things back right. Until then terror and destruction will rule over our hearts.

Shall we invite him back?
