“Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord…” (Psalm 33:12 NIV)
As I sit on a field trip school bus at my local county court house, I’m watching our local kids learn more about our great Constitution as today is National Law Day. Law Day is a special day aimed to help people appreciate their liberties and to affirm their loyalty to the United States, especially with regard to equality and justice. It also aims to cultivate respect for the law, which is vital to the democratic way of life.
Next Thursday, May 7th, happens to be the National Day Of Prayer for America. At noon, millions of believers across our nation will be meeting at their local court house as well, to pray for America and show their appreciation for the Almighty God that gave us our law as well as our national blessings. But it’s also a time of national repentance, that the blessings of God might continue here for generations to come.
As you go through your day today, take time to pray for your nation. Give God your appreciation for all He has blessed us with, then pray for the continued divine favor to keep falling upon our lands. A nation will be blessed as they bless the Creator of the nation! We are loved today!
