 Reflections of My Heart

USA  United We Stand ~ Divided Did We Fall ? ? ?

United We Stand
Divided Did We Fall ? ? ?

I love my enemies
for it takes two to fight
I dislike my enemies actions
for today it is still my right

The future of this land
that I hold so very dear
at best is in question
and so much I fear

But the fat lady did sing
the majority has spoken
I just pray America's spirit
will not be forever broken

For the choice of my support
I was call a racist bigot
When race played no part
when I marked my ballot

Those who voted
because of the color of his skin
and dared to call me racist
are the ones that carry the sin.

This man who now
is to lead this grand nation
prior to his entry
Well I really had no indication

No track record
deemed any public mention
What was I to go by
in voting in this election

I would never vote party
or stand silent on that day
for those who wasted or did not vote
well now you have nothing to say

It always comes down
to lesser of two evils
for what is a campaign promise
is empty words given to the people

For those who did not vote
I shout "SHAME ON YOU"
I'll never throw in the towel
for my country my duty I will do.

A person of color leading America
how awesome this is to see
It shows how far we have risen
from the ashes of slavery

But this nite I watched the returns announced
and discovered Oh My Precious Savior
It was all about race
as I watched all the behavior

This saddens me so
something so vital was upon race
I thought we had come further
for this I find total disgrace

This man I must find
within to support
for me it's a hard struggle
but, one I can not abort

For United we must be
in taking each brothers hand
standing shoulder to shoulder
across this awesome land.

Oh this man I so fear
and the unknown that surrounds
I fear the America we love
is about to crumble down

But my duty to my country
is to somehow rally behind
This new leader that was chosen
God PLEASE guide him during this time

Billy Graham's Prayer
For Our Nation

Heavenly Father,
we come before you today
to ask your forgiveness
and to seek your direction and guidance.
We know Your Word says,
'Woe to those who call evil good,
but that is exactly what we have done.
We have lost our spiritual equilibrium
and reversed our values.
We have exploited the poor
and called it the lottery.
We have rewarded laziness
and called it welfare.
We have killed our unborn
and called it choice.
We have shot abortionists
and called it justifiable.
We have neglected
to discipline our children
and called it building self esteem.
We have abused power
and called it politics.
We have coveted
our neighbor's possessions
and called it ambition.
We have polluted the air
with profanity and pornography
and called it freedom of expression.
We have ridiculed
the time-honored values of our forefathers
and called it enlightenment.
Search us, Oh God,
and know our hearts today;
cleanse us from every sin
and Set us free.

America the Beautiful
Artist Ray Charles
