Praying for the Gulf Oil Spill

With No Gulf Solution in Sight, Louisiana Turns to Prayer

I was very pleased to see this headline on FOXNews' website this morning. It was the state senators that made the proclamation but it is a start toward our nation beginning to look to the Right Source for our problems.

We have trusted our technological skills -born out of exceptionalism and good-ole-American-know-how -so much that we have come to expect everything to go right.  And if it doesn't, someone must be to blame.

The fact is, we as a nation are fallible. We are humans and there are times that we will come to the end of our abilities.  It is at those times that we must turn to a Higher Power.  We turn to God.

It is also a fact that if we turn to Him prior to our problems becoming unmanageable - He will hear us.

It's how God deals with individuals and -I believe - it is how He deals with nations . . . as long as we try harder and utilize only all that is humanly possible He will stand aside (in most cases) waiting for us to invite His involvement.

I am so glad that the Louisiana State Senate made this step, and I am glad FoxNews chose to publish it.
