To The Daily Sun,
There are two sides to everything. The same is true of our national election next Tuesday. I am not talking about our two parties, but instead speaking of politics versus God.
In my 72 years on this earth, I have never seen a race where both candidates are so unpopular, with almost no trust from the American people.
What would cause these things? To me, it is very simple. Our leaders have become so self-important and arrogant that they feel no need to worship God and thank him for what this country has enjoyed for the last few hundred years. God is only mentioned if it gives the candidate a political advantage.
This coming Sunday, Nov. 6, from 6 to 7 p.m., the Weirs United Methodist Church, at 35 Tower St., will be holding a one-hour prayer meeting, for our country and its candidates. This is not a political venue, but a group of humble people asking for God to change hearts and minds.
History has proven over and over that the power of man is a delusion, and through prayer the power of God is supreme and right. For one hour on Sunday evening, we will ask for forgiveness and open our hearts to a God who can forgive and right the course of this nation. We will acknowledge that He is in control, not us.
If this is done with a sincere heart, at that moment, the doubt and depression that you have been feeling will disappear. For you have turned the ugliness of politics over to the only one who is able to change things.
