The song says,“America! America! God shed His grace on thee, And crown thy good with brotherhood From sea to shining sea!” May each of us pray for the United States of America that God shed His grace on us and that its citizenry will humble themselves before God. May freedom continue to ring across the land and may people put their faith and trust in God Almighty and His Word. May righteousness and biblical truth prevail in the hearts and minds of this great nation that it rise above all opposition to the greatness intended by our Lord. (Ps.33:12, NKJV) ”Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord…” We are praying you discover daily that you are joined with others in faith for the righteousness of our nation.

As you consider your musings throughout the day, as you hear news broadcasts and partake in discussions about current events, may the Lord encourage you for the future of our nation and your vital part in assuring that future. May you be encouraged that your prayers and partnership are significant in His workings in America. May you receive His assurance that you shall not be moved out of purpose nor off the foundation of God Almighty. Let’s claim (Ps.46:5) “God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall help her, and that right early.” Also (Ps.62:6) “He only is my rock and my salvation: He is my defense; I shall not be moved.” We are praying you discover daily that God is your defense.

“They may gather together and stir up strife, but it is not from Me. Whoever stirs up strife against you shall fall and surrender to you. But no weapon that is formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue that shall rise against you in judgment you shall show to be in the wrong. This triumph over opposition is the heritage of the servants of the Lord; this is the righteousness or the vindication which they obtain from Me says the Lord”. (Isa 54:15, 17 Amp)
How do I dare address this to America? I dare because the gift of righteousness is deposited in those who believe in Christ, a remnant living in this country to give witness that this is a Christian nation that belongs to the Lord and His original purpose for it. Rather than passively assuming America cannot receive and agree with this promise in Isaiah, I can aggressively declare we do receive and agree with it. I not only can, I just did.
