An Open Letter to Our Next President

Dear Madam or Mister President,

As a millennial, a soon to be college graduate, and a Christian, I have been keeping a close eye on this election on the basis that the outcome will either benefit or detriment my transition into adulthood. To be quite honest, America’s current state seems to be becoming more and more like a dystopian novel with each passing day. Criminals are claimed to be innocent, while the innocent are claimed to be criminals. Instead of turning the other cheek when we get offended, we now sue one another for monetary gain for the most asinine reasons. God, Jesus, and Salvation are considered controversial subjects only mentioned by “religious bigots” who are only out to “brainwash” others with their “close-minded” thinking. A nation that was founded on religious freedom is now only allowing freedom for religious groups that denounce God, Jesus, and Salvation. We live in a country that considers it cool to register your religion as “Jedi”, but horrific if you so much as pray to God on a football field after a game. Madam or Mister President, I’m not asking you to grant my wish to fix all of these things while you’re in office; I’m simply asking you to look to God for guidance, and not act solely based on left-wing or right-wing agendas.

“Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people.”

-Proverbs 14:34

My favorite past president, Ronald Reagan, famously stated, “If we ever forget that we are one nation under God, then we will be a nation gone under.” Oh, I bet former President Reagan is rolling in his grave as you presidential candidates are fighting like this election is one big reality show. You focus on tweets. You focus on past accusations. You focus on wigs. You know what I’ve heard very little about during the presidential debates? How you’re going to make America a GOD FEARING NATION again. As of right now, America’s on its way under. The more we adhere to and legalize the foundations of sin, the further we will fall. Madam or Mister President, do you want to see us crumble completely, or do you want to build us up, to truly make us great again? Well, the only possible way to do that is to lift America’s burden off your shoulders, and to place it in the hands of our Almighty and very capable God.

“If my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”
-2 Chronicles 7:14

The key thing to remember here is that we as a nation, and you as a leader must humble yourself before God in order to help our country prosper again. This doesn’t mean that Hillary is the supreme queen or that Donald is the reigning king. This means that you will seek guidance from the Lord, not from Congress. This means that you will bring prayer back to public places, not incorporate more safe spaces. This means that you will promote godly media more than that of sinful content. You will treat your neighbors as yourself. You will lead others to righteousness instead of encouraging one another to turn away from God. As President, if you truly want to make an (let’s be honest, GOOD) impact on America, you will allow God to take your place as the leader of the free world, and you will allow Him to guide your actions as commander and chief.

Goodnight, and God bless!
