As we celebrate our country’s independence today, I would like to encourage you to spend time praying with your family today for our nation. It’s a family tradition that could change the world. Imagine the impact of families around the world praying together for our nation. May our hearts be filled with gratitude today for the men and women who have sacrificed their lives to bring us the freedom we enjoy today. May we thank God for protecting us and blessing us the way He has.
The following links provide wonderful inspiration and reflection on what we are celebrating each 4th of July. Andy Stanley is one of the most gifted communicators I’ve ever listened to. The messages are brief but incredibly rich, and I can’t think of a better way to begin our 4th of July celebrations than to listen to these messages, reflect on what God has done for us, and pray for our nation.
If your children are old enough to listen to a sermon for about 20 minutes, I would encourage you to listen to these together as a family.
I hope your 4th of July is full of fun memories with friends and family!
