After seven decades of watching the political process, two things are evident to me. Frist, those seeking high office are all flawed. The very best Christians who have been president in my lifetime were often the worst presidents; George W. Bush and Jimmy Carter come to mind. Both were very decent God-fearing people who were utterly incompetent as presidents. John Kennedy, our only Catholic president, was a sexual deviant. I fear that is a disorder many of our leaders have suffered, Bill Clinton being the poster boy.
When the good ones are so often bad leaders, and the bad ones as often good leaders, what is one to do? This election year is the worst in my lifetime. Never could I imagine America choosing two such awful people. With the flawed candidates we are offered how do we make a right decision?
There is only one answer: pray!
Pray for America. Because our culture is sinking into a quagmire of moral confusion.
Trust God will answer our prayers. If America does not soon drop to its knees in prayer, we are destined to get what we deserve. If you want real leadership in America – pray for it! Our God can do anything!
If ever America needed a miracle this is the year.
