Sweet Land of Liberty


 
This year marks 239 years since our Founding Fathers gave us our National Birth Certificate. We continue to be the longest on-going Constitutional Republic in the history of the world.  A  blessing such as this is not by chance or accidental, it is a blessing of God.

 
If God is going to bless America, it will not be for the sake of the nation itself.  He blesses the nation, and has always done so, for the sake of His people.  If we who are called by His name are not fulfilling the conditions for divine blessing, there is no hope whatsoever for the rest of the nation.
John MacArthur

 
Our fathers' God to thee,
author of liberty
to thee we sing
 long may our land be bright
with freedom's holy light
protect us by thy might
great God our King

 
Billy Graham's Prayer for the Nation
 
Our Father and Our God, we praise You for Your goodness to our nation, giving us blessings far beyond what we deserve. Yet we know all is not right with America. We deeply need a moral and spiritual renewal to help us meet the many problems we face. Convict us of sin. Help us to turn to You in repentance and faith. Set our feet on the path of Your righteousness and peace. We pray today for our nation's leaders. Give them the wisdom to know what is right, and the courage to do it. You have said, "Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord." May this be a new era for America, as we humble ourselves and acknowledge You alone as our Savior and Lord. This we pray in Your holy name,
Amen.
 
Until Next Time
Let Freedom Ring
