ProLifeCorner- Freeport Pregnancy Center- Sherrie Bicksler, Executive Director of the Pregnancy Center in Freeport, Illinois sent in the following note.
“As I was awakened 3 times in the night before the Mayor’s Prayer Breakfast today where I was asked to pray for S.O.H.L., God placed so many thoughts on my mind and heart that I rose up and jotted them down in prayer form as follows:
Prayer for Our Nation
Dear Heavenly Father, Creator of all things, Giver of Life, Who was, Who is, and Who evermore shall be,
I stand before You today on behalf of believers everywhere–especially in America. Father, we confess before you–we have failed! Father, forgive us, as individuals and as a nation. Our founding fathers had it right. Their hearts were for ‘One Nation Under God’ — with ‘..life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness’ and ‘Justice for all.’
America was founded for religious freedom. We were created by You with freedom to choose— …to choose to: accept, love, and follow You or — do it ‘my way’.
Forgive this nation Father — we have made bad choices and we have gotten it wrong. …”
