Have been on my knees for years asking for God's mercy and forgiveness for this country that has strayed so far from Him.  He is our only hope.

Yes; I try to live as God would have me live, each & every day of my life.  I'm human & when I fail (as we all do), I always ask his forgiveness.

Nothing says "humility" like boasting in public about your piety.

What are you talking about?  This post was a direct question at those of us who are Christian, asking if we will pray for our country.  No one is boasting about their piety.  I cannot speak for anyone else, but it means a lot to me to know there are other moms on CM praying for our country.  We hold no illusions of grandeur, or perfection.  On the contrary, we know that everyday requires that we confess our sins and ask forgiveness because as humans, no matter how hard we try, we will make mistakes both big and small.  The thing is, we acknowledge those mistakes, do ask for forgiveness, and try very hard not to repeat them.  When I look at what made our country great, and see where those qualities are today, many (even most) of those things are gone.  Rather, we have a country that has decided that there is no need for faith, and is pushing God out of every corner.  To me, as  Christian, this is the very root of all the crap that is going on.  We have abandoned our principals, and are building our country on a foundation of shifting sands rather than on the Rock.  This is not boasting.  This is reality.

What's wrong with this country?  Why should we pray for it?  And I'm not being snarky.  I'm a Christian and I see a lot of good going on.  I see equal rights for all citizens occuring.  I see humanity and kindness all around-every time there's a natural disaster people flock from around the nation to help.  The biggest problem I see is the politicians with agendas being unreasonable and idiotic.  But, that's happened since the beginning of politics.  And as a Christian, God hears me whether I am sitting in the forest speaking to him or down on my knees pleading with him (which I will not do.)  So, instead I thank God for allowing me the privilege of living in such a great country.
