Prayer for Our Nation
 Offered by Reverend Peter Marshall on July 3, 1947           
           God of our fathers, whose Almighty hand hath made and preserved our Nation, grant that our people may understand what it is they celebrate tomorrow. 
          May they remember how bitterly our freedom was won, the down payment that was made for it, the installments that have been made since this Republic was born, and the price that must yet be paid for our liberty.  May freedom be seen, not as the right to do as we please, but as the opportunity to please to do what is right.  
          May it ever be understood that our liberty is under God and can be found nowhere else.  May our faith be something that is not merely stamped upon our coins, but expressed in our lives. 
         Let us, as a nation, not be afraid of standing alone for the rights of men, since we were born that way, as the only nation on earth that came in to being "for the glory of God and the advancement of the Christian faith."  We know that we shall be true to the Pilgrim dream when we are true to the God they worshiped.  
       . To the extent that America honors Thee, wilt Thou bless America, and keep her true as Thou has kept her free, and make her good as Thou hast made her rich.   Amen.

July & August - Psalms 
Every man woman and child is on a spiritual journey. Each of us is either moving toward God or away from him.

We long for all people to connect with Christ, to grow in spiritual maturity, and to serve as Christ's hands and feet in His world.  ...  read more �
