  I pray
Following is the basic substance of my continual prayers for America:

“Father, I pray for America, the nation of which I am a citizen on this earthly pilgrimage though I live elsewhere. I thank you for the countless blessings you have given to mankind through this very imperfect nation. I pray because you alone are God, you change the times and the seasons, you remove kings and set up kings. I thank you that your Son, Jesus Christ, has all power in heaven and in earth and, therefore, no one has any power that is not given to him by Christ and no one exercises power that is not under the hand of Christ. I pray according to your command in 1 Timothy 2:1-2, for those who are in authority, for the president and vice-president, for the senators and congressmen, for the state governors and the local leaders. I give thanks for the great liberties and blessings we have even in these evil times, liberties that most men in this fallen world have only dreamed of. I pray that those who are in authority will rule in such a way that we might lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. Give them wisdom to make right decisions and confound their evil decisions. I pray that you will restrain the devil’s mystery of iniquity in all of its forms, as God’s Word tells us you are doing (2 Th. 2:7). As the church is the pillar and ground of the truth, I pray for pastors to be strong and to lead your redeemed people according to Scripture and not according to tradition and pragmatism, to fear God more than man. I pray for churches to wake up from worldliness and lukewarmness and to shine as lights in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation. You said that you show mercy unto thousands of them that love you, so I pray for your mercy upon the nation for the sake of those who love you and I pray that those who love you will increase. I pray this in the name of Jesus Christ, who alone is the Mediator between God and men by His glorious ransom.”

Sharing Policy: Much of our material is available for free, such as the hundreds of articles at the Way of Life web site. Other items we sell to help fund our expensive literature and foreign church planting ministries. Way of Life's content falls into two categories: sharable and non-sharable. Things that we encourage you to share include the audio sermons, O Timothy magazine, FBIS articles, and the free eVideos and free eBooks. You are welcome to make copies of these at your own expense and share them with friends and family. You may also post parts of reports and/or entire reports to websites, blogs, etc as long as you give proper credit (citation). A link to the original report is very much appreciated as the reports are frequently updated and/or expanded. Things we do not want copied and distributed are "Store" items like the Fundamental Baptist Digital Library, print editions of our books, electronic editions of the books that we sell, the videos that we sell, etc. The items have taken years to produce at enormous expense in time and money, and we use the income from sales to help fund the ministry. We trust that your Christian honesty will preserve the integrity of this policy. "For the scripture saith, Thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn. And, The labourer is worthy of his reward" (1 Timothy 5:18). Questions?
