On this day that celebrates the beginnings of our independence, please remember to pray–not just today, but whenever you remember to do so, for our country.
She is dinged, battered and bruised. Pray that God raises up the right leaders and that He work in our current leaders (whether they realize it or not) to take our country in the right direction–not one that abandons common sense and morality for the sake of poll numbers and re-election.
2 Chronicles 7:14
“…if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”
Mankind and its wisdom cannot do anything apart from God. We are learning that hard lesson. Our trust should not be in people (all of us put way too much hope in man), but in God, who can infuse His will through them.
I truly hope and pray that God blesses America.
Have a fun and safe Fourth of July.
