Really on the brink?

Big news today - Iran is only a few short months from having the world's most powerful weapons. What will they do with them if they get them? Two guesses - Israel and US. If we go in to stop them, or if Israel goes in to stop them, all heck will literally break loose in the region. There's going to have to be a decision made by the world powers and soon.
Add this to the mess on healthcare, the immigration problem, conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan, widespread corruption in our government and other powerful bodies (ACORN, SEIU, Apollo Alliance, etc), government takeovers of the auto industry, banking, insurance, and apparently education of our children - it's enough to make you want to crawl back into bed, pull the covers up and pretend the outside world doesn't exist. But Bill O'Reilly said something on his show tonight that caught my attention. As the last line of his Talking Points memo, he said we should all be praying. That is absolutely correct! In this world, which is becoming more upside down, more uncertain, more threatening by the day, there is only one source of peace, comfort, stability and safety - and that source is our Heavenly Father. The prophets and apostles have told us for years and years how important prayer is, how vital that connection between heaven and earth is to us, collectively and individually, in seeking guidance and protection for ourselves and our families. I urge everyone (yes, all one or two of you who actually read this thing) to seek after and develop a personal relationship with your Heavenly Father. He wants to talk to you, and is willing and waiting to do so today! Now more than ever we need His guidance, as individuals, as families, as communities, and as a nation. Go to Him, thank Him for what you have, ask Him for his help, and then be willing to do those things He prompts you to do. It's the least we can do, and one of the best things we can do.
