I would ask everyone who prays to please keep the USA in your prayers. I can't help but feel that this is going to be a very difficult week for my beloved country. There has already been so much violence and I am concerned there will be more. I keep praying that God's Will will be done and the darkness will be banished, but I can't help but feel Election Day will not end the violence we have been seeing.

I heard they found piles of bricks in our downtown streets. Someone put them there. Something nefarious is happening? I am proud of the folk that speak out even under threat of violence. We must stop the violence before it happens and hopefully pick up all the bricks before they are thrown.

Please report the bricks to the police ASAP and stay safe. Piles of bricks have been a precursor to rioting.

I am with everyone on feeling anxious but God will help us get through it! I do NOT watch the mainstream media they lie so much DAILY that they should have to change their names to the OPIONATED news! We had the best economy ever and I know we will beat this virus and come out stronger! I personally want to stick to our Constitution as it was written and keep God in our pledge of Allegiance! Prayers for the USA and ALL Countries!

We are on the same page. Thanks for putting the truth in your response. And I agree, all countries need prayers during this time.

Kudos to you, your daughter and the pastor of her church. We have found out that a lot of folks are praying and fasting so you have joined a wonderful caring group. This is likely to continue for weeks and even months so please keep the prayers going. And thank you.

I hear you Karen, it's going to be a trying week. I don't think you'll find out this week either who will be 'in'. What with all the postal votes that have already been done, it will take weeks to get a final outcome. I just can't believe how many people in your country have contracted the Covid19 virus. I pray that this will soon end. Our world is definitely in need of a miracle. May God bless you all and keep you safe from harm. Love Chris

Thank you Chris. So much of what is said in the main stream media is not true but meant to scare us and keep us scared. The numbers of the virus is one of the ways this is happening. What is so frightening to me is that our country's laws and Constitution is being not only ignored but tossed aside during this.

Yes, so much frightening press leading up to this election. Pray that the best will come out in our fellow citizens and not the worst.

We don't watch the main stream media for several reasons. It is hard to find what is really true and what is really going on in this day and age. I know many folks are actually reading what other countries are saying rather than listening to our main stream media.

I too pray for God's Will be done Karen. I pray for us all to put our trust in God. He loves us and knows what we need.

Oh, Karen, I feel the same way - the tension is so great, you can feel it. I too wonder what people all over the world think of us and our situation. I am embarrassed and worried for our country. I so hope our election will go smoothly - and we can begin to heal. Thanks for the post! Hugs, Laura

I'm not sure to take comfort that others are feeling as I do or want to cry for us all. So I just keep praying that it will be God's will and that the darkness will be banished at least for a time for us to recoup.

It is an extremely difficult time for the USA at the moment. I have been following every day what is happening. I will probably stay up and watch through the night as the results come in. I hope there will not be too much violence. These are very difficult times. Stay safe.

I agree. We keep tabs on many of the countries and we are all having our struggles. We are ready to hunker down and encourage others to stay safe.

I probably should have included prayers for the entire world. I think every country has its struggles at this time. I guess I'm being selfish for my own country.

Every day for a long long time now. In all my years have never seen my beloved country in this kind of chaos.
