PRAYER FOR AMERICA -- POST NOV. 6, 2012


Here is a prayer I offered as the invocation for a CARMA luncheon meeting on November 15, 2012. CARMA IS COLONIAL AREA REPUBLICAN MEN'S ASSOCIATION,  a group of about 140 people who share concerns about the decline of our great nation. While this is not intended to represent the view of every CARMA member, many expressed wishes to make the prayer "public." This is not easy to come to grips with and my not being a theologian makes it even more difficult. We are profoundly concerned that traditional America and all she has stood for is all but gone. While her soul may be gone, her name will go on. What will she be??


PRAYER FOR AMERICA – CARMA, 15 NOVEMBER 2012        By Dr. J. A. Mann

HEAVENLY FATHER, WE COME TO YOU WITH HEADS BOWED IN GRATITUDE FOR ALL THE BLESSINGS YOU'VE BESTOWED UPON US. AS AMERICANS WE ARE ESPECIALLY THANKFUL FOR OUR GREAT NATION AND FOR THE FREEDOMS WE'VE HAD, FREEDOMS ENDOWED BY YOU.

BUT, FATHER, WHILE WE COME TO YOU IN GRATITUDE, WE ALSO COME WITH HEAVY HEARTS AND PROFOUND CONCERNS FOR YOUR GREATEST ENDOWMENT -- TRADITIONAL AMERICA AND THE PRINCIPLES UPON WHICH SHE WAS FOUNDED AND FOR WHICH SHE HAS BEEN A MODEL FOR THE WORLD FOR TWO AND A HALF CENTURIES.

TRADITIONAL AMERICA'S CONDITION IS NOW CRITICAL, SHE IS LATE IN THE WINTER SEASON OF HER LIFE. PERHAPS HER LAST BREATHS WERE TAKEN ON NOVEMBER 6, 2012. WE SENSE IT, ONLY YOU KNOW IT.

TRADITIONAL AMERICA'S MODEL FOR THE WORLD IS NOW BEING TRANSFORMED BY THOSE WITH DISDAIN FOR HER TRADITIONS AND HER PRINCIPLES. THEY SEEK TO BRING HER TO PARITY WITH LESSER NATIONS.

ATTEMPTS TO STOP THE DECLINE, AND DEATH, OF TRADITIONAL AMERICA HAVE BEEN IN VAIN. FATHER, WE SEEK YOUR INTERVENTION AND GUIDANCE IN STOPPING THE DESTRUCTION OF AMERICA, “ONE NATION UNDER GOD, WITH LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL. HUMAN SECULARISM REPLACES GOD, LIBERTY IS NOW CONNATED AS 'GIVE BENEFITS WITHOUT EARNING THEM', AND JUSTICE IS NOW 'SOCIAL JUSTICE,' WITHOUT MORAL AND ETHICAL ABSOLUTES.

WE RECOGNIZE THAT THOSE WHO WANT TO TRANSFORM AMERICA ARE NOT UNLIKE PARASITES DESTROYING THEIR HOST. SUCH PARASITES HAVE NOW GOTTEN CONTROL OF THE ONCE PROUD AND HONORABLE DEMOCRATIC PARTY.

EFFORTS AT COMBATTING THE PARASITIC DESTRUCTION HAVE BEEN UNSUCCESSFUL BOTH BECAUSE OF OUR OWN INEPTITUDE AND THE WILLINGNESS OF THE TRANSFORMERS TO APPEAL TO THE WORST INSTINCTS AND INCLINATIONS OF ENOUGH AMERICAN'S WHO SEEK ONLY PERSONAL BENEFITS AND THINK NOT OF WHAT IS BEST FOR ALL OF AMERICA. OUR BATTLE IS HARD!

AGAIN, FATHER, WE SEEK YOUR INTERVENTION. WE DESPERATELY NEED YOUR GUIDANCE. GIVE US THE MORAL CONVICTIONS, THE EMOTIONAL STAMINA AND THE RESOLVE TO DO WHAT IS NECESSARY TO SEE TRADITIONAL AMERICA LIVE.

FINALLY, FATHER, WE MUST RECOGNIZE THAT.... IF TRADITIONAL AMERICA DID, IN FACT, DRAW HER LAST BREATH ON NOVEMBER 6, 2012, ONLY YOU CAN RESURRECT HER. WE HUMBLY ASK THAT YOU DO SO IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST.

AMEN

  1. Mr Mann,
    I find your prayer to be one of the most disgusting pieces of rubbish I've ever read.You have the arrogance to preach to God your opinions of America; you call your fellow citizens parasites; and you do this in the name of Jesus Christ?!?!? The Jesus and God I know transcend politics; they are all about love, compassion, caring and healing...not hate!!!
    I too am concerned about the direction our nation has taken; but I trust in God to continue to bless us for our goodness; not our politics.

      I suppose if I wrote such utter rubbish as "Anonymous" I wouldn't have the guts to put my name on it either. Amazing how some cowards will hide behind their keyboards and write things on the Internet they would not DARE to say to one's face. I support Dr. Joe!!!!

    2. Bob,my friend, thanks for your support. Unfortunately, the people who write trash and disparagingly of others and hides behind the veil of anonymity are among those who have taken control of, and are now the face of, the Democratic Party. I've avoided being so blunt in the past, out of respect for my forebearers who were honest traditional Democrats as well as those who are honest liberals today (vanishing breed). Time has long past when a meaningful debate can be had. Truth takes a back seat to "concept" as my left-wing neighbor demonstrated a few days ago. Been in discussions today about the false premise of "unions are for the people." No more is this true. BUT, TRUTH IS NOT THE DRIVING FACTOR FOR TOO MANY TODAY. Traditional America is a victim. All of our progeny are victims. I am grateful for the friendship and support from folks like you who have lived the truth and the real-world life whether it be in service to our country or in other pursuits.

  2. I loved your prayer--you have accurately diagnosed the problem and have succinctly articulated our need for the Lord's intervention, especially in the hearts of all Americans. Good on ya, mate. Regards, Lisa Mount

  3. Thank you, Lisa. I value your thoughts quite highly. It is gratifying that it has been well-received except for the one anonymous critic above.
