We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. – from the Declaration of Independence, adopted July 4, 1776.
I am thankful today for the men and women of this country, who fight and give up their own lives so that I can be free.
I am thankful for God, without which no man would be free.
Let’s remember to pray for America today. God pursues her diligently, and is calling her back to Himself. He is seeking those with a heart of repentance, those who would stand in the gap and cry out for mercy.
Mercy for the unborn, robbed of their right to life through abortion.
Mercy for the women and children held in captivity, robbed of their right to liberty through human trafficking.
Mercy for those held in deep despair, who have been robbed of their right to pursue happiness.
A child has a right to be born and live the life God intended for him/her.
Women and children have a right to be free, to live their lives without fear of being controlled and manipulated.
The hurting and struggling, they have a right to pursue happiness, and in the pursuing they will find God.
He gives life.
He brings liberty.
He (and he alone) brings happiness and everlasting JOY!
Come Lord Jesus to America. We need you!
