Christian Devotions

Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance.
 
Psalm 33:12   (KJV)
 

IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We began with an acknowledgement of God’s sovereignty; we abjure that sovereignty to our detriment. Let us resolve to reinstate God as the sovereign of our nation.

Father, God,

Grant us the grace and fortitude to re-establish You and Your principles as the foundation of our land. We bow in sorrow at our failure to keep your commandments as we ought. We weep with grief over the frailties that we have allowed to dominate our society.  Help us to set our nation on your paths again.

In Jesus’ most precious name.
Amen
