Remember What This Country Was Founded On

I have been watching this petition on https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/ that was around 6,000 signatures yesterday and is at nearly 12,000 today. It is to remove "In God We Trust" from our currency and "Under God" from the Pledge of Allegiance.

Most of these petitions are just ignorant, but this one worries me because once it gets 25,0000 signatures it goes to the White House for consideration. Our government has already taken God out of several places, they are currently working on taking Him out of several other things(such as marraige), and this would be something I could see them pursuing once it meets their guidelines to start the process.

This country was founded by people who wanted to be free to worship God their way. Yet we, as a whole, seem to be turning our back on God in every way possible. Continuing to do so WILL end badly for the U.S. We need to pray that we, as a people, will correct our ways and go back to what this country was founded on...a belief in God and a desire to serve Him.

Isiah 59:2 (ESV) "But your iniquities have made a separation between you and your God, and your sins have hidden his face from you so that he does not hear."

I for one, do not want God to stop hearing me.
