Today is the day our country has set aside as a National Day of Prayer. I would like to encourage you to find a group or event and participate in this life changing event.
America was founded as “one nation, under God” by our founding fathers. This history of our country is rich stories of heroes overcoming terrifying circumstances by putting their faith, hope and trust in God. Here is an excerpt from an article by David Jeremiah:
‘Detained by enemy troops, he was forced to watch a brutal bombardment of America’s eastern seaboard. Toward morning on September 14, 1814, it became clear that we’d survived and Francis Scott Key scribbled our national anthem on an envelope. Little known stanza four says:
Blest with victory and peace, may the heaven-rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation!
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just.
And this be our motto: “In God is our trust.”
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.’
