Today's Favorite Verse: Doctrine & Covenants 39:16, 18
"Behold, verily verily, I say unto you, that the people in Ohio call upon me in much faith, thinking I will stay my hand in judgment upon the nations, but I cannot deny my word.
And inasmuch as they do repent and receive the fulness of my gospel, and become sanctified, I will stay mine hand in judgment."
I just had to ask myself "how many times has the Lord stayed his hand in judgment'? How many times has the prayers of the righteous saved our nation? When will he stop doing it? When the people no longer feel the need to repent. I hear those very words echoing in our nation. I am mournful that the Lord will no longer stay his hand.
