FREEDOM is something to thank God for everyday! He has blessed this nation so abundantly with His grace and mercy. God is good to America and today we need to thank Him for being so good to us!
Precious Father, You have ensured our freedom here in America. We know that without You we are nothing as a country. Thank You for freedom to practice our faith as we believe is right, freedom of speech. Under a dictatorship I could not be posting prayers in a blog, or saying them aloud. Thank You that I am not oppressed, but free to express my love for You without fear of punishment or worse. The press in our country is free – to be left of center, right of center – or to be on target with You. We are free to agree or disagree with others on facebook or in person. We are free to unfriend a friend on facebook if things get too intense. We are free to read the Bible in public. We are free to choose right or wrong. You gave us a free will – that came from You. America is great but You are greater. May we wake up and realize that our freedom to do what we want and choose to follow You – that freedom comes from You, not from laws on the books in the U.S.A. Our laws are based upon the fundamental Christian values we hold dear. I pray that as a country we never stray away from that truth. If we begin making laws that support sin, we are surely in dangerous territory and we will lose Your blessing. We know You cannot look on sin. You will always forgive us our sins, but You will not tolerate sin to continue in Your presence. We don’t want to lose Your blessing in America. May we have the wisdom to know right from wrong and make laws that support the right and shun the wrong. We want our nation to please You always. Thank You for our freedom. It’s in Jesus’ matchless Name we pray, Amen.
