An American’s Prayer

May our prayer be the same as one of the earliest citizens of the United States: Almighty GOD; we make our earnest prayer that Thou wilt keep the United States in Thy holy protection, that thou wilt incline the hearts of the citizens to cultivate a spirit of subordination and obedience to government; and entertain a brotherly affection and love for one another and for their fellow citizens of the United States of America at large. And finally that Thou {Read More}

Song of Freedom

The exact moment of one’s perceived independence is subjective, isn’t it? The date or event fluctuates with age. As a young teenager I sang, “Born Free” with the sorrow of a caged animal. My spoiled, middle-class American teenage girl angst shrouded the recognition of the myriad freedoms I took for granted. “When I’m 18, I’ll finally be free of these adults and their strict rules,” I moaned with self-imposed grief. When I was 18 and moved out of my parents’ {Read More}

5 Scriptures I’m Praying on July 4th

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 {Read More}

The Faith of George Washington

As America celebrates the anniversary of the signing of our Declaration of Independence, I’ve wondered if there might not have been an America except for George Washington. In an excellent book, Seven Men: And the Secret of Their Greatness, Eric Metaxas draws the same conclusion. He begins his book with the story of George Washington who “once gave up extraordinary power. He actually could have become king, when being a king really meant something; but he selflessly refused the honor. . {Read More}

When a Nation is Born

Today my family will celebrate July 4th with hamburgers, hotdogs, and homemade ice cream. If the rain holds off, we will watch a spectacular fireworks show set to patriotic music at a nearby venue. There will be sparklers in the driveway when we return followed by an encore fireworks display by various neighbors in our subdivision. In 1776, there were no celebrations similar to ours in 2013. Being 237 years removed from that fateful July 4th, we sometimes forget the {Read More}
