America is in a battle for the soul of the nation. Dark forces have gathered to threaten the very foundation upon which America was built. It is a war against good and evil, a battle not against flesh and blood, but invisible rulers of darkness.
Isaiah describes a sinful nation in Isaiah 59:3-8 (NLT):
Your hands are the hands of murderers, your fingers are filthy with sin. Your mouth is full of lies, and your lips are tainted with corruption.
No one cares about being fair and honest. Lawsuits are based on lies. They spend their time plotting evil deeds and doing them. They spend their time and energy spinning evil plains that end up in deadly actions. They cheat and shortchange everyone. Nothing they do is productive; all their activity is filled with sin. Violence is their trademark. Their feet run to do evil, and they rush to commit murder. They think only about sinning. Wherever they go, misery and destruction follow them.
Is it any wonder then that forces of darkness have risen up to malign the character of a man who humbly sought the Lord’s direction before declaring his candidacy for President of the United States?
Herman Cain exhibits an exemplary character and lifetime of achievement. He has risen to the top in his every endeavor. His resume speaks for itself: Navy rocket scientist; computer Coca Cola systems analyst; Pillsbury VP of Corporate Data Systems & Services; business manager over 400 Burger Kings; CEO, owner of God Father’s Pizza; chairman, National Restaurant Association; Federal Reserve advisor; chairman, Kansas City Federal Reserve Bank; writer, public speaker, radio host, associate minister, faithful husband and father.
And because opponents cannot discredit Herman Cain’s record, they have maligned his character with vague accusations, innuendo and in Cain’s own words, outright lies. The media pointedly refers to ‘alleged accusations of sexual harassment’. That is how forces of darkness operate to discredit a righteous character and manipulate an election.
America is at a crossroads between greatness and destruction. This nation still enjoys the blessings of Godly men and women from past generations. However, each generation will choose its own fate. Liberty can be lost in one generation. The day is approaching when Americans may no longer claim In God We Trust unless we Christians humble ourselves, seek God’s face, and change our wicked ways.
That said, let us lift Herman Cain in prayer, a man who sought God’s council to run for United States President.
We ask for justice against those who have maligned Herman Cain’s name. We ask that people will judge him on his true character and lifetime achievements.
Guard him as the apple of Your eye, hide him in the shadow of Your wings, protect him from the enemies who surround him and are against him.
Rise up a righteous man to lead America, one who will seek Your face; an approved workman who does not need to be ashamed and who rightly speaks the truth.
