A Call To Prayer

My area of interest in writing has been historical. It is exposing many things to me and God is speaking to me to dig deeper. My family is rather new to the USA, historically speaking. Tilly's Song is about immigration and that is a 'Hot' topic in the news today. The news is full of stories about how illegial immigrants who are criminals are invading our borders, taking our jobs, getting benefits even working Americans don't receive. Now, the state of Arizona is coming up with a law to profile illegal people. Until this happened I have nodded my head to all the 'Ain't it awful' stories about injustice with 'them' the illegals and 'us' the citizens of this fine Nation. Let's put the brakes on here quickly. We need to continue to manage the amount of people who immigrate into our country from any nation in the world; we have in the past and need to continue. HOWEVER! Profiling can become a monster of hate, fear and potential violence. I am asking my readers to not be casual with our freedoms of voting or our duty to prayer. Most of the people that are alive today never lived during the Nazi days of Germany, so let history teach us how insidious evil disguised as good can enter a society and bring moral decay to destroy it.
I am asking for each of you to pray for wisdom and discernment about the immigration matter, the health care laws, our government leaders, our educational system and everything for which God leads you to pray. But Pray!
