The Bible says “Direct your children onto the right path, and when they are older, they will not leave it.” (Proverbs 22:6). If America is going to survive for generations to come, we must have a moral revolution in our nation. And that revolution begins at home and in our children and youth.
As we have seen from great leaders of old, God often uses children and young people to bring about a cry that will wake up nations. Samuel, David, Daniel, Esther, Josiah… these people stood up from a young age and answered the call of God to be like John the Baptist, “a voice crying in the wilderness” to prepare the way of the Lord.
Karis Peters is one such girl who is standing for modern day America when she spoke at the 2015 ACE International Convention in Las Cruces, New Mexico. She recited a revised version of Carman’s “We Need God In America Again”. And boy do her words ring true and timely for our nation today. Listen to Karis’ amazing rallying cry:
“Our country was founded on the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We eliminated God from the equation of American life. Thus, eliminating the reason this nation first began. From beyond the grave, I hear the voices of our founding fathers plead: ‘You need God in America again.’”
We need more young people like Karis to stand up and proclaim the light of the Gospel and love people well so that God might be welcomed in America again.
