Prayer for America

This Independence Day, I want to be grateful for the many blessings we have by living in America. I am very grateful for the freedom of religion that makes it possible for me to go to church, witness, and write this blog without persecution. Freedom of expression, the right to bear arms, and women’s rights are all part of our country’s fabric, woven throughout the past 2 centuries.

America really is beautiful.

Please read the lyrics of a famous American song, followed by a prayer for America.

God Bless America, By Irving Berlin

God bless America,
Land that I love,
Stand beside her and guide her
Thru the night with a light from above;

From the mountains, to the prairies,
To the oceans white with foam,
God bless America,
My home, sweet home.
God bless America,
My home, sweet home.

Prayer for America

Dear Almighty God,

You have blessed us God, even when our government and society runs from your truth and your Word. Thank you.

I love this land you have made! May you give us the passion to preserve it and treat it well for many more years.

Many have stood beside our country, fighting for our freedom, and we thank you for their service. Please bless their families with comfort and peace.

Please guide this country and those leading it. May your plans prevail, and may their hearts be changed by You. Be the shining light they follow. Guide us also with Your light.

Your creation is amazing! We in Colorado get to see the purple mountain majesties, and are filled with awe at the work of your hands.

This place is our home, sweet home. Help us protect this land and the foundation she was built on. May we be devoted to serving you, pursuing the truth, and making you known.

Please, in Your great grace, continue to bless America.

Amen.

Have a blessed Independence Day! May you enjoy time with family while celebrating our country and being grateful for the men and women who have fought to protect her and our freedoms.
