4 The land fades and withers,
the world wilts and withers,
the exalted of the land languish.
5 The land lies defiled under its inhabitants;
because they have transgressed the teachings,
changed the law
and broken the everlasting covenant.
6 Therefore a curse is devouring the land,
and its inhabitants are punished for their guilt.
It is why those living there waste away,
and the people left are few.
This is the state of our nation now. We have withdrawn ourselves so far away from God the land itself is failing under our feet. Scouching drought, massive floods, record storms and earthquakes. God forgive us and flood us with Your Spirit to turn us back to You.
