America’s Birthday

July 3, 2012

Once again, this great nation of ours celebrates its birthday.  Once again, we will drink lemonade, eat hot dogs, and shoot off fireworks.  We will listen to band concerts under the stars.  All as it should be.

Millions of men and women sweated and sacrificed to create this nation.  Hundreds of thousands gave their very lives for rights we often take for granted.

How many will make time on July 4th to thank God for the devotion of those who came before?  To thank Him for the bountiful grace shed on this nation?

God bless America.

May God Almighty bless you, and make you fruitful and multiply you, that you may be an assembly of peoples…” (Gen. 28: 3).

Lord God, we thank You for Your many blessings toward our nation.

On this the nation’s birthday, we ask that You draw our many peoples together.  Make us again one nation under God, with liberty and justice for all.

And grant us peace.

Amen

  1. And you still have some people out there sweating and bleeding, people may disagree about the politics of it but without those guys and gals, American still would not be the great country it is. And this is a Spaniard talking, compared to my country and a whole bunch of others here in Europe believe me is a great country. Just my personal opinion.

  2. Exactly, Charly. Many of those girls and guys come home missing an arm or leg, with bloody visions they may never shake. While our defenders look for jobs our politicians sent overseas, those same politicians cater to special interests and spend millions on re-election. It sickens me.
