Once in the land of US, there lived a people called WE. WE became a wonderful people, governed by a Great King called THE LORD. He gave US such good laws and government until WE became the envy of all the world and WE had prosperity unlike anything anywhere. But alas, WE became unthankful and vain, lazy and proud, and THE LORD brought in a fierce and terrible unseen enemy with a great mouth called THEY. THEY told everywhere that WE lost our promises and furthermore there was nothing WE could do about it. And THEY paraded throughout their land telling monstrous tales until WE had no hope at all of being free again.
Among US, though, was a small child, I, who had heard what THEY had said, but I remembered the covenant with THE LORD. "If my people which are called by My Name will humble themselves and pray and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and forgive their sins and heal their land," thus I refused to hearken to the intimidating lies THEY told although I was subject of much mockery and ridicule. And although WE laughed and said there was nothing I could do either, because THEY were stronger than THE LORD, yet I believed God and His promise.
I thus insisted and petitioned THE LORD earnestly and He said that I could turn His heart because of the repentance and reformation, and how glad I was. And because of this remembrance and repentance, I was made into a new people and given a great heart and such courage that I thanked THE LORD for a good memory. THEY were driven out and defeated utterly and I led WE, THE PEOPLE, in a prayer meeting of thanksgivings to THE LORD.
