If prayer can move mountains, surely prayer can move 34 state legislatures to call a convention of the states to take control of an unrestrained federal leviathan that acts with impunity and against the interests of the nation and its citizenry [“10 states line up to limit federal power”]. A massive U.S. government complex unhitched from the Constitution is a major threat to the lives and freedoms of American citizens.

In 1969, I heard an obscure song entitled “The Monster” by Steppenwolf. It’s about that government complex, which was then a bare fraction of its size and capabilities today. The song’s message is stark and prophetic, a dire warning, and, in the stanza below, makes a plea to the real America to save herself. It could have been written in 2015. Pray for the states, where the real America resides, to convene and rein in the monster.

There’s a monster on the loose
It’s got our heads into a noose
And it just sits there watching
America where are you now?
Don’t you know we need you now
We can’t fight alone against the monster
