Broken hearts, broken trust. That's how many Americans feel
about our country's leaders and current conditions. America, it's time to get our eyes back on Christ and not on people.
It's time to love and live like Jesus Christ. Take this verse to heart:
you do these things, God will shed his own glorious light upon you. He will heal you; your godliness will lead you forward,
goodness will be a shield before you,
the glory of the Lord will protect you from behind." (Isaiah 58:8, TLB)
Indeed, it is our duty to pray and do all we can at a local and state level to honor God. We must protect the freedoms
to worship God. We must pray and work hard to preserve "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness".
Our country was built on Christian beliefs, as explained by Thomas Jefferson in the
Declaration of Independence: "We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal; that they are
endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness."
Remember, the current swirling mess of politics cannot hold a candle to God's greatness and power.
So, let's release our fears to Him and place our country and our lives in His hands. We like to say, "When we do our
best, He'll take care of the rest." (Can we get an "amen"?)
needs healing. Now is a time to come to Jesus with open hearts and earnestly, consistently ask Him to intervene on the USA's
behalf. Yes, we need Jesus. America needs Jesus.
This month's edition of Unite the USA is designed to focus
on the unshakeable hope we have in Jesus. We must never give up serving Him and doing what's right. With that said, please
enjoy this poignant, timely message by Pastor Doug Corlew called "God and Government". You will feel moved and encouraged.
We urge you to watch this powerful message.

on the throne yesterday, today, and forever.

Q & A with UnitetheUSA.org
Q: "Is America really a Christian nation?"
is clearly a Christian nation and history proves it. Scores of documents contain limitless information that our country was
founded by predominantly Christian men and women who used the Bible as their guide. When you read the Declaration of Independence,
the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights, you will see how our Creator is acknowledged and how His teachings are integrated
throughout. Yes, when you read founding documents, letters, books, and so forth you will be amazed by the clarity that we
were founded on the desire to serve the Lord in freedom. The evidence is staggering and it is too much to address in this
In closing, we were founded to allow men and women to live in a land where
they could worship freely whether they are Christians or not. People originally came to the New World to seek religious freedom
as Christians and to escape religious persecution in Europe. To this day, our country is intended to give all people of all
backgrounds the freedom and opportunity to worship as they please. Compared to many other countries, we largely still have
those rights but they are being slowly taken away. We must sincerely pray and do all we can to keep America free and redeem
the rights that have been taken."

Jesus. Listen to "In God We Still Trust" for inspiration to keep "fighting the good fight". For hope
