GOD'S WRATH

"The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness."

—Romans 1:18 (NIV)

Do you suppose that the above verse, speaking of the wrath of God, is true for every nation except the United States? Is there some way that we are somehow exempt from the wrath of God? We don't like to think about this, but the truth is that there is no exempt nation. Godlessness and wickedness will attract God's wrath of God, both for individuals as well as for a nation. When godlessness and wickedness are embraced by a nation, then the wrath of God will be directed against that nation.

In the last 50 years, we've seen a serious attempt at suppressing the truth in the U.S. An artificial wall of separation between church and state has been built with the intent of removing God completely from the public square. And this is just one of the ways that truth is suppressed. Because of this, according to the Word of God, the wrath of God is being revealed.

There are a number of ways we can pray over such situations. First, we ask that God's wrath bring about its purpose of leading people to repentance. Ask that our sufferings not be wasted but be brought to their redemptive purposes. We should also ask that God's truth be restored to public consciousness and acceptance, so that there be no divorce between the spiritual and secular.

  • Repent on behalf of our nation because we have allowed the suppression of God's truth.
  • Pray that God's wrath on the wicked will bring about repentance.
  • Ask the Lord for a boldness in the church to stand for truth in our nation

DAILY PRAYER

Father, I tremble as I read Your Word today. I fear for my nation as I see godlessness and wickedness on the rise and the increased suppression of truth. I pray for mercy in the midst of Your wrath. Pour out a spirit of repentance, that the people of America may turn our hearts back to You.
