America, America, God Shed His Grace on Thee...

"Act as free men, and do not use your freedom as a covering for evil, but use it as bondslaves of God." 1 Peter 2:16

Wow! What a conviction! Do not use your freedom as a covering for evil...how often is this being done in our country? Thousands upon thousands of men and women have lost their lives fighting for our freedom...our God-given freedom. Our country was founded on religious freedom...the freedom to worship as we choose. How has that principal of freedom turned into what we have today...where criminals have more rights than victims...where people can freely do things that are clearly an abomination in God's eyes? We're breaking God's heart. How long will He allow this to go on?

Father, I thank You today for the men and women who have served this country...fighting for the freedoms that You've given us...and defending our nation against terrorism. Lord, I believe that this country has been the apple of Your eye, but we've allowed that apple to become rotten to the core. Father, forgive us...forgive this country for what it's become...what we've allowed it to become. Pour out Your Spirit upon this nation and raise up Godly men and women who will bring this nation back to You. I love You. Amen and amen.

Happy Birthday, America!!
