Day 10
Father, we thank You for all the bountiful blessings You have poured out on America. We praise You, knowing that all good things come from Your hand. Thank You for Your Creation, Your Word, Your Son, Your Spirit and Your Truth. Thank You that You make Your true character known to those who truly seek You.
Thank You for providing the way for forgiveness and for healing in our lives and in our nation. Thank You for Your patience, Your mercy, Your pardon, and Your provision.
Thank You for the faith of our founders, and for giving them Your wisdom. Thank You for those who have gone before us who pledged their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor to establish this country and proivide for our freedom.
Thank You for all those who have put their lives on the line for the freedom and welfare of others. Thank You for the religious freedoms we enjoy – to gather, to worship and to pray. In Jusus' name, Amen.
