May 5, 2016 Annual National Day of Prayer

Don’t forget to pray for our Country, our President and all politicians and citizens throughout this USA!

May we never forget that our founding fathers prayed to almighty God in the year 1775 for direction as to how to proceed for in the establishment of our country. Our founding fathers also founded this country on Judeo-Christian values and knew full well that this was a country rooted in Christianity. Their ideal, hope and plan was not to have an official state religion but that all could freely practice any faith tradition and that religion would not interfere with government and that government would not interfere with religion.

Presidents George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, Harry S. Truman and Ronald Reagan to name a few,  along with many of the rest of the Presidents knew and acknowledged the power of prayer in their own life as well as for our country as they each instituted days of prayer for our country. Abraham Lincoln made prayer a declaration in 1863. Harry S. Truman made it official in 1952 and Ronald Reagan made it an official date on the first Thursday of every May starting in 1985.

Heavenly Father, we thank you for the freedom we have and the traditions we share over the years as citizens of the United States of America. Thank you for everything you have bestowed on us. May we never forget we are citizens of your eternal Kingdom first and foremost and be thankful for the blessings you have provided for us as Americans and may we always treat others with the dignity and respect you would want us to and lift up never tearing down. May we respect all human life in all it’s stages and be good stewards over this earth you have gifted to us. May we forever glorify your name in business and life while helping other along the way, in the holy name of Jesus, and through the power of the Holy Spirit! AMEN!

God bless America!!!
