Practically Speaking

Kyle and her husband moved to Brookfield in 1986. She became active in local politics and started blogging in 2004. Her focus is primarily on local issues but often includes state and national topics, too.

A call to prayer for America on July 4th

History, Holidays, Religion, United States

Happy Birthday
AMERICA!


When the Declaration of Independence was signed, John Adams wrote to his wife Abigail his thoughts on how this special day should be remembered:

"I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival.
It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty.
It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward for evermore."

 

Today we think of the 4th as a day for parades, picnics, and fireworks. This year, Family Research Council is calling for Christians to pray, more specifically, to fall on their knees in prayer:
 

 

"We are asking pastors and believers all across America to spend time on our knees for our nation this Sunday July, 4, 2010..."

"The very day we celebrate our "Independence," we need to re-declare our "Dependence" upon God in humble and repentant prayer. At minimum, we hope that those gathered in their places of worship will at least spend a few minutes on their knees in prayer on July 4......"


If your church isn't participating, please consider spending a few minutes at home on your knees in prayer for our nation.

May God Bless America!
