I used to live on the outskirts of Philadelphia. One of the things I loved about where I used to live was my being able to make daily or weekly excursions into the city especially the downtown historic district. I have a history buff so I enjoyed walking into our countries. I walked the streets many times reveling in the fact that our forefathers once walked these same streets. Another thing I liked was all strolling in and out of all the little shops especially record stores like 3rd Street Jazz. I snagged a lot of good deals there.
Now driving and walking around Philly I get a little saddened because it has changed so much since my youth. The charm I used to feel is a little weakened but still there. One of the things I like to do now when I venture into my home city or Philly is pray as I walk or drive around. Each city or home town is filled with people who all need the Lord. So my advice today is do the same, pray for your hometowns or cities. Pray for the people, the government or whatever God lays on your heart, but pray.
