All week I’ve considered this July 4th post and what to write. After last week’s Supreme Court ruling, threats of terrorism, and the horrendous racial attack against fellow believers in Charleston, SC, July 4th is more somber this year. When I think about July 4th this year, prayer immediately comes to mind.
Our nation needs prayer.
From our leaders to each citizen, we need the Lord God Almighty. Our nation needs salvation only found in Jesus Christ.
Today while I’m making potato salad, visiting with friends, and watching fireworks I will also be in prayer. I will be praying the Word of God over our nation, my family, and myself. We all need God.
