Today we entered into a new book, Lamentations. To me this book really hits home to us in America when it describes Jerusalem it weirdly enough sounds just like the United States. It says, “How lonely sits the city that was full of people! How like a widow has she become, she who was great among the nations! She who was a princess among the provinces has become a slave.” – Lamentations 1:1. Later on in verse 8 it says Jerusalem was like that because, “Jerusalem has sinned grievously.” So much of what goes on in our world and especially the United States goes against what God wants us to do. The only hope that any country has in the long run is to keep God first, and it seems as if there is less, and less of that. So our job as Christians is to pray. Pray for our country, world, and leaders so we don’t become what Jerusalem became.
