A PRAYER FOR AMERICA

CARMA INVOCATION – 21 APRIL 2011

I AM NOT A MEMBER OF THE CLERGY AND I DON'T WEAR RELIGION ON MY SLEEVE. BUT, I VALUE PRAYER AND I CONSIDER FAITH A STATE OF MIND DRIVEN BY FEELINGS FROM THE HEART. THE ASSAULT ON OUR JUDEO-CHRISTIAN PRINCIPLES AND ON THOSE OF FAITH CAUSES ME TO ASK THE FOLLOWING:

HEAVENLY FATHER, WE COME TO YOU WITH HEADS BOWED IN GRATITUDE FOR THE MANY BLESSING YOU’VE BESTOWED UPON US.

AS WE ASSEMBLE HERE IN FELLOWSHIP AND WITH THE INTENT TO BE INFLUENTIAL IN THE WAY WE ARE GOVERNED, WE ARE GRATEFUL FOR THE FREEDOM TO DO SO AS WE ARE FOR ALL THE FREEDOMS WE HAVE ENJOYED AS AMERICANS, FREEDOMS ENDOWED BY YOU.

WE ARE GRATEFUL FOR THOSE DEDICATED AMERICANS WHO HAVE PROTECTED OUR FREEDOMS AND EVEN HELPED BRING LIBERTY TO MILLIONS OF OTHERS IN THE WORLD …..MANY HAVE PAID THE ULTIMATE PRICE WITH THEIR LIVES.

WE ARE GRATEFUL AND PROUD THAT TRADITIONAL AMERICA HAS BEEN AN “EXCEPTIONAL NATION” WITH A CULTURE BOUND BY ABSOLUTES OF MORALS AND ETHICS – A ROLE MODEL FOR MANY AROUND THE WORLD.

NOW AMERICA’S EXCEPTIONALISM IS BEING DELIBERATELY DIMINISHED AND MORAL AND ETHICAL ABSOLUTES ARE BEING REPLACED BY RELATIVISM BY THOSE WHO SHOW DISDAIN FOR TRADITIONAL AMERICA AS THEY FIGHT TO “TRANSFORM” HER INTO A MODEL OF THEIR MAKING.

SECULAR HUMANISM IS REPLACING OUR JUDEO-CHRISTIAN FOUNDING PRINCIPLES.

OUR ECONOMIC SYSTEM, TRADITIONALLY A MODEL FOR THE WORLD, NOW HAS STRUCTURAL PROBLEMS THAT CANNOT BE SOLVED BY METHODS BEING USED BY CURRENT "LEADERS". WE PRAY FOR REAL LEADERS TO SOLVE THESE PROBLEMS.

AMERICA’S NATIONAL DEBT HAS GROWN TO BURDENSOME LEVELS THREATENING OUR SOLVENCY AND EVEN OUR SOVEREIGNTY.

AMERICA, AS WE HAVE KNOWN AND LOVED HER, IS UNDER ATTACK FROM WITHIN, AS WELL AS FROM THE OUTSIDE. FATHER, WE PRAY FOR TRADITIONAL AMERICA

STATESMANSHIP IS ALL BUT ABSENT IN OUR NATIONAL LEADERS. UNSELFISH ATTITUDE AND FAITH, THAT ONCE BOUND THOSE OF DIFFERENT PHILOSOPHIES FOR A COMMON PURPOSE AND FOR THE BENEFIT OF MANY, IS TOO RARE TODAY.

FATHER, WE ARE IN A STRUGGLE FOR THE HEART AND SOUL OF TRADITIONAL AMERICA.

WE PRAY FOR YOUR GUIDANCE IN THIS STRUGGLE IN THESE PERILOUS TIMES. PLEASE GRANT US THE KNOWLEDGE AND THE WISDOM WE NEED TO BE EFFECTIVE IN OUR BATTLE TO MAINTAIN TRADITIONAL AMERICA.

FATHER, WE PRAY FOR THE EMOTIONAL STAMINA AND RESOLVE NECESSARY TO PREVAIL. WE HUMBLY ASK THIS ON BEHALF OF ALL AMERICANS.

AMEN

JOE MANN, 21 APRIL 2011
