"Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father." Paul to the persecuted at Philippi (2:5-11)

A modest proposal.

If America is, as some claim, a Christian nation, then I think America should put feet on that proclamation. After all doesn't Jesus demand "love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you?" I propose that the US Congress declare a national month of prayer for each of the twelve most notorious enemy states over the next year AND that the American people (including our government officials who claim to be Christian) then write to the leaders and embassies over the course of the appropriate months and tell them that we're praying for them and want God's blessings for them.

I wonder how that would change our foreign policy.
