Almighty God, most Americans try hard to make the world a better place to live, but Satan and his demons who do his bidding continually labor to destroy such good work. Lord, there are good men and women in this country who spend their time trying to rid the world of disease, but evil men work hard to build arsenals of germs and chemicals to infect and kill millions of people. God has warned us that the devil is around us and always making plans for death and destruction and we need to resist his efforts by our actions and our prayers. The warning was there. A number of godly men and women heard them. But most of the American people either didn’t hear or they ignored what they heard. In Christ name. Amen.
