Happy Independence Day

Happy Independence to all of our family and friends who are American citizens, wherever you are.  I am so thankful for the freedoms that we enjoy because of the sacrifice and dedication that so many men and women have made over the years, and still make to our country. We thank you with all of our hearts.

Likewise, and most importantly for me, I am thankful for the sacrifice that Jesus Christ made on the cross so that each of us might have everlasting life through Him.  Having a personal relationship with Him brings freedom and joy deep within that simply cannot be found elsewhere.

The song posted below entitled, "The Statue of Liberty", has been one of my favorites for many years.  My prayer for America is that we will look to God for needed answers in this time of difficulty and divisiveness, and that we will find peace and hope not only for our great country, but for ourselves. 

Prayer:  Heavenly Father, I thank you for the privilege of living in this great land called America.  Even though we see many difficulties presently and on the horizon, Lord, just continue to bless us and lead us.  Please give godly wisdom to our leaders and help us to continue to be a beacon of hope for those who are less fortunate.  Thank you for all you have done for this country called America.  I pray this prayer with a thankful heart in the name of Jesus Christ.  Amen.
