Today we are celebrating the founding of our great country and remembering our ancestors who helped to secure our freedom from oppression and tyranny. I had ancestors who helped chase the Red Coats back across the pond where they belong, as did my husband. Every generation has sons and/or daughters who have served this great country and we owe them so much.
But, in the midst of our celebrations let us never forget that especially today we must defend our country against enemies foreign and domestic. And I’m not altogether sure which is the greatest threat at the moment: Foreign Enemies or Domestic Enemies. The current administration surely qualifies as Domestic Enemies and we continue to pray that there is a remnant in our legislature and our court system who will rein in the abuses and the attempts to turn this great country communist. It. Will. Not. Happen. Not on our watch. We can not allow it. Stand strong. Speak out. Be not afraid.
In our celebrations let us not forget our God, upon whom this country is founded. May He watch over us and protect us from harm and confound our enemies, especially those from within who seek to destroy us. May He inspire our citizens to put an end to racial violence and the murder of unborn babes in the womb.
Please, Lord! I believe there are enough of us, your children, who stand against these evils and I pray you will not turn your back on us, the faithful. We need you now more than ever, Lord.
