As we look forward to celebrating our nation's birthday on July 4th, I sincerely hope that each of us will pause and give thanks to Almighty God for the freedom we enjoy in this country.


As Peter Marshall once prayed,

"God of our fathers, whose almighty hand has made and preserved our nation, grant that our people may understand what it is they celebrate today. May they remember how bitterly our freedom was won, the down payment that was made for it, the installments that have been made since the Republic was born, and the price that must yet be paid for our liberty. May we think of freedom not as the right to do as we please, but as the opportunity to please to do what is right. May it ever be understood that our liberty is under God and can be found nowhere else. May our faith be something that is not merely stamped upon our coins, buth expressed in our lives. To the extent that America honors The, wilt Thou bless America. Keep her true as Thou has kept her free, and make her good as Thou hast made her rich.


As we celebrate, let's join together and pray for America to come to Christ.                                                                                                

How desperately our country needs JESUS!
