Dear Editor,

Now is the time for the churches of America to awaken and arise wiping the sand from our eyes. The Pied Piper has played his lullaby and put many churches to sleep. The time to wake up is now! The time to take action is now! How could we be so silent while more than 54 million innocent babies have been aborted? Is God dead? Is He deaf and blind? Is there no judgement? There isn’t if He is dead. There isn’t if He cannot see what is going on down here. There isn’t if He cannot hear the silent screams of the babies. No! God is alive and well. “I am the same yesterday, today and forever,” He says, “I change not.”

We have a clear-cut choice to make on Nov. 6. The intent of the candidates could hardly be plainer. Church, we have the power (through God’s will) to put an end to the sacrificing of our children.

We all know our country is sick, almost staggering like a drunken person. We need the blessings and power of God back in our churches, our homes, our hearts.

Let us come together to pray, to join in unity and reaffirm our commitment to the One True God. Please join us for a Candlelight Prayer Vigil on the [Mason County] courthouse steps on Nov. 5, from 6 p.m.-7:30 p.m. Coffee, hot chocolate and cookies will be served. Let’s get back to the Constitution and other godly precepts we were founded upon.

Connie Gibbs,

Letart, W.Va.
