Hey members!  We need Sunday School teachers for this summer!

An Independence Day Prayer

by Margaret Cagle

Lord, on July fourth we’ll celebrate Independence Day in our nation.

You gave us the truth to set us free.  You sent Jesus to die for our salvation.

We thank you for the precious freedom that we have in our nation today.

We know this country’s not perfect, but we honor our nation, the USA.

We thank you for the Founding Fathers, who for freedom took a brave stand.

Many placed their very lives in peril to start a new country in a new land.

I thank you for the brave soldiers, who gave their lives to keep us free.

They gave their ultimate sacrifice for freedom for Americans like me.

As we shoot fireworks and celebrate with patriotic concerts and parades,

We thank you for all your blessings and your great love that never fades.

As we gather with our loved ones for picnics and barbecues and fun,

We want to thank you for everything, especially for sending your only Son!
