America Rise!

Updated on August 6, 2014

America Rise!

America, turn back to God!

In whom you openly declared that you would trust

It is engraved on paper, but not in your heart

It is not too late to make a brand new start.

What will it profit you to gain the whole world?

At the expense of losing your own soul

What can you give in exchange?

Rise up take courage and be strong.

Repent! And turn back towards God

Just as the Prophet John says we must

America rise up in prayer and take your place

Look up and seek God’s face.

I lament, I cry and I pray, that

America would find her way

Come back to the God who loves you

With steadfast and sure mercies.

Prepare the way of the Lord!

Join together and pray on one accord

Make His paths straight, and not crooked and bent

Send up a fragrance and not a continual scent.

How long will you make Him wait?

Rise up and be the Country that you were called to be

Open your slumbering eyes so that you can clearly see,

Who it is that is calling you to be all you are meant to be.

      Hi Dana: How are you? I pray all is well. Thanks for dropping by and commenting. Pray your words, ask the Heavenly Father that America wakes up once again, and build upon His principles that once made this a great country. Those are good words.......Praise the Lord Jesus Christ!

      Hi Faith Reaper. You are prophesying when you speak to America and say wake up! Keep that up!....Just as Ezekiel was told by God to prophesy to those dry bones, and to tell them to hear the word of the Lord. Your words have power to cancel her slumbering status. It is definitely praying time and speaking those things that be not as though they were and are.

      God not only has a plan but He's put that plan inside of your spirit. For the rest of your life, God's plan that is within you will be coming out as you discover what God has for your life.

      That is why prophetic and spirit-led and spirit-filled prophesying is so important. It brings out what seems to be hidden or buried... and it exposes it to you and to those who are watching your life...

      Why Do We Have a "Hidden Secret"?

      1 Corinthians 2:10-11 But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God. For what man knows the things of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God. Thanks for dropping in and commenting.

      Hi mabelhenry, Love your poem here. My sentiments. God is the best resort and last resort. If a person doesn't resort to God in time then they'll miss out on blessings. You are blessed with the Word of God. Keep on keepin' on :-) Voted up again and again my sister!

      Yes, Amen! It seems that the eyes of Americans are truly slumbering. Wake up America.
