“God bless America, land that I love. Stand beside her and guide her through the night with the light from above…”
Yes, I do love America. What a great freedom-loving land! Thank God for all the Christians in this land. Thank God for all their many prayers for our country and its leaders. We must keep on praying ‘till the Light breaks through.
Satan is waging one of his fiercest battles against us. We must hold Christ’s banner high and never give up, never surrender…fight the good fight of faith. Victory is on our side. God’s Word says that nothing is impossible when we put our trust in God. We are going through some hard times. Our weeping may endure for the night; but the possibility of joy, coming in the morning, keeps us afloat. So hold on to God’s unchanging hand.
Here are some ways we can hold Christ’s banner high.
Pray morning, noon, and night.
Pray for our country; our national leaders.
Pray for our State leaders, and our local leaders.
Pray for ourselves; strength for the battle.
Pray for sinners to be saved; the lost found.
Pray for revival all over this land.
Pray for your church and our churches in outreach.
Pray for pastors/preachers to be fired up and anointed as they preach in their pulpits.
Pray that we will live out our Christian beliefs.
Pray for our enemies and the enemies of God.
I’m flying our American flag. Hope you are also. On this July 4th weekend, celebrate well. We are enjoying having Charles’ sister, Diane, with us for a few days. She doesn’t get to come often, nor do we get to travel to Texas to see her. But, we sure do love and appreciate one another. So we want to give Diane, just one example of Americans everywhere enjoying family and friends celebrating the freedoms in America. Thank God for the freedoms we have.
Samuel Smith wrote these words in 1831,
“Our fathers’ God, to thee, Author of liberty, To thee we sing; Long may our land be bright With freedom’s holy light; Protect us by thy might, Great God, our King!”
Now, may we put on the whole armor of God; pray, and stand in the gap for our great country.
