On The Bright Side – Mary Howell- July 4, 2013

Filed under: Mary Howell — Freddie Keel @ 5:58 am

 

Today,  the United States of America will celebrate its 237th birthday.  The Declaration of Independence was signed by 56 brave men who wanted to establish a new nation that was free from England.

 

Our founding fathers suffered various perils after the Declaration of Independence was signed.  They joined together to guarantee freedom from foreign rule.

 

Our founding fathers wanted to establish a government of the people, for the people and by the people.  They especially wanted freedom of religion so that people could worship as they pleased.

 

When our nation began more than 237 years ago, our founding fathers sought to base our government upon Christian principles.  They sought God’s will in the writing of the United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights which guaranteed freedom based on the Ten Commandments. Today it seems that America has drifted away from seeking God’s will for our nation.  Let us remember to pray for America and our government officials all the way from the nation’s capitol to the Sabine County Cousehouse and from the White House to the Hemphill city hall.

 

America’s birthday will be a good day to pray that our President will be the leader that God would have him to be.

 

We could also remember to pray for our Supreme Court, Congress and state governments.  Our schools, church, committees all need our prayers.

 

 

Let us pray for America that its families and friends will return to God in our daily lives and pray that we will have a life on the bright side.
