Dr. Dobson shares a special newsletter on the moral decline of America. 


“Therefore thus says the Lord: ‘Behold, I will surely bring calamity on them which they will not be able to escape; and though they cry out to me, I will not listen to them.  So do not pray for this people, or lift up a cry or prayer for them.’”  (Jer. 11:11, 14)
Clearly, if depravity becomes so pronounced and pervasive, there will come a time when calamity will fall on us.  Has America reached that point of no return?  I don’t know.  I pray not.  I do know our Heavenly Father is compassionate and long-suffering.  David wrote,
“The Lord is gracious and merciful; slow to anger and great in lovingkindness. The Lord is good to all, and His mercies are over all His works.”   Psalm 145:8-9
It is time for repentance and forgiveness, and there is an occasion set aside for it. The next National Day of Prayer is upon us.  It will occur on May 1st.  My wife, Shirley, has led the Task Force for 23 years, and her team is making final preparations now for another nationwide prayer vigil. There should be 100,000 prayer events from coast to coast.
