[QUOTE: Lincoln called for one on April 30th, 1863, at which time he said "...it is the duty of nations as well as of men, to own their dependence upon the overruling power of God, to confess their sins and transgressions, in humble sorrow, yet with assured hope that genuine repentance will lead to mercy and pardon; and to recognize the sublime truth, announced in the Holy Scriptures and proven by all history, that those nations only are blessed whose God is the Lord."
I truly believe this is why our country is so far off track. If you seek the Lords way you will have humility, morals and ethics. Things will not change untill we have and hold those values. Patriotism wil naturally will be there with these values. God has changed my life in so many good ways, I have had a change of life illness and it has opened so many doors that I don't think I would have stepped through with out Gods help
