Thank you, Lord, for the privilege of living within boundary lines that allow me to freely proclaim my faith and teach my children to do the same. In this day of celebrating the independence of our Nation, I celebrate my dependence on Almighty God. I do so with great gratitude for those who have sacrificed their lives and well-being for our freedom. I do so with great passion for preserving our freedom. I do so with great reverence for the Sovereign God who has deemed us free. Lord, let us not set your grace aside. Rather, let us proclaim it and thrive in it as our forefathers intended. With the ageless words of the ancient prophet, Amos, I say, Let justice flow like a river and righteousness like a never-failing stream. Amos 5:24. Indeed, A Blessed Birthday, AMERICA!
