Father, we thank you for the opportunity to glorify your name. In II Chronicles 7:14 (NIV) it is written, “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”
We do together humble ourselves, pray and seek your face and turn from our wicked ways. The rest is up to you.
Show yourself to those who genuinely look for you.
And may this website be a light and a source of strength and encouragement. May we look not only on own interests but remember those in need.
Above all, may the Spirit of Christ guide us for he is the fragrance and essence of love - and a sure foundation.
Tea Parties and other patriotic Americans are fearful of the decadent path the nation is treading and, in particular, the pervasiveness of the federal government.

Make no mistake, government is not as benevolent as it seems. Disobey it and you will find its fury.
And Thomas Jefferson so wisely stated, “When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty.”
Despite pleas to stop the government takeover of industry and large sectors of the economy our elected officials ignore the will of the People and the Constitution, seeming to be pushing another agenda.
Regarding Article I, Section 8 in the Constitution, James Madison wrote, “If Congress can do whatever in their discretion can be done by money, and will promote the General Welfare, the Government is no longer a limited one, possessing enumerated powers, but an indefinite one.”
The United States was founded, for the most part, by devout Christians giving the nation a sure foundation as evidenced by their writings:
“Let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion.” George Washington, President
“It is the duty, as well as privilege and interest, of a Christian nation to select and prefer Christians for their rulers.” John Jay, Supreme Court Justice
“The general principles on which the fathers achieved independence were...the general principles of Christianity.” John Adams, President
