The Broken Home

By   •   December 1   •   Topics:

The broken home has become the number one social problem of America, and could ultimately lead to the destruction of our civilization. Since the basic unit of any society is the home, when the home begins to break, the society is on the way to disintegration. It is a threat to the American way of life. It does not make screaming headlines; but, like termites, it is eating away at the heart and core of the American structure.

It is high time that our so-called experts on marriage, the family, and the home turn to the Bible. We have read newspaper columns and listened to counselors on the radio; psychiatrists have had a land-office business. In it all, the One who performed the first marriage in the Garden of Eden and instituted the union between man and wife has been left out.

Prayer for the day

I pray, Lord, for the homes in this beloved country. Without Your love and wisdom guiding us, our society will crumble.

    I pray Lord for all the families that are broken and confused. We all need to spend time together as a family and put down all the worldly distractions. I pray in Jesus name for the Holy Spirit to come upon them and restore their family values. Thank you Lord for your presence in my life. Glory to you Lord, Amen

    I give thanks to God for you Billy Graham and your organization. I ask God’s Will and for prayers for my two great nephews(3 &5), my niece(24) and her husband(24) . They are separated and most likely are headed for divorce. I keep trying to find words of advice for them but seems to fall on deaf ears. Giving it up to God’s hands as we instructed to do. In Jesus name I pray.
