America (2) – Tenafly Rotary Invocation


(After the Oklahoma City bombing and the discovery of terrorist groups)

Oh, Lord, what is happening to America-the-beautiful – to the people and government so much of the world looks up to?

I for one, Lord, pray that there will be no more armed bands in uniforms threatening to change events with their guns instead of with their ballot box. The intended threat of terror sounds too much like the fascist and Nazi movements of old. Lord, America is made up of people who came here from all parts of the world and, for the most part, live as brothers. We ask that you give strength and courage to those who love our country and our democratic way of life.
