Reflect upon the direction your life is headed. Would you call yourself a disciple by biblical standards? Who runs your life; you or God?
Reflect upon the direction your family, your state, and your nation are headed. Are they increasingly reflecting God’s righteousness? Do you think God is smiling when he looks at them with you?
Reflect upon how you will feel about yourself and these institutions in which you play a part, when you one day stand before God to be judged for what you did while you were here on earth
Reflect upon the present condition of the church in America; it being the agent through which Jesus purposes to bring His righteousness into manifestation in the above mentioned spheres
Reflect upon how our nation compares with others which God has brought down because of their unrighteousness. Ask God to help you step out of your own context and take a really good look at the facts, not the smoke and mirrors of self-justification
Make a list of major offences of which our nation is presently guilty


Reflect upon what would be required of us to see a relenting of God’s anger and a
return of His favor
Reflect upon the possibility that this nation was conceived in the heart of God as an increment in the progressive establishment of His government in the earth (which we understand will only occur completely and perfectly after His second coming), and what will be lost if we proceed from ignominy to oblivion
