Over one million children at risk for sexual exploitation for money.
Over one million abortions per year.
Over two million incarcerated at end of 2003 (men are locked up)
Over six million under the supervision of the adult correctional system at end of 2013.
A national push for same-sex marriage which is also a critical factor in this crisis of motherhood. Why? In the world of same sex marriage, men marry men, and women marry women. Biblical motherhood, which includes a male husband married to a female wife, does not fit into the world of same sex marriage.
Christians, perhaps this incomplete, yet telling picture of the brewing crisis in motherhood will cause us to push II Chron. 7:14 a lot harder in the churches where we serve.
Pushing and consistently practicing II Chron. 7:14, does not cost anymore than what we already spend, does not require another leadership structure, does not require another political strategy, and does not require anything more than Christians leaders and laity committing to obeying God within our sphere of influence.
|II Chron. 7:14: "and My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land."|
Some spiritual solutions to our nations sin problem are so simple and cost effective that we overlook them.
Every time Israel put away their idol gods, repented, and turned back to serving God, they experienced national healing.
America is overdue for national healing, and Christians must lead the way as salt and light.
