You are the God who gave us freedom and encourages us in times of distress.
We have never needed You more.. We see the carnage men’s wisdom produces.
You guided our founders…brave men and women, to dare to seek freedom. You challenged them to build a unique place where they could define their own destiny…not limited by government.
That freedom requires the courage to risk and fail. America is where freedom has reigned because the brave were willing to take great risks. Their courage bought all mankind a better world.
Somehow, we’ve lost the courage to be free. We cower from bullies and seek “safe spaces” where personal responsibility and accountability can be avoided.
A place where we could trade our freedoms for promises of government security.
Lord, restore to us the courage that drove our founders to risk everything for the dream of freedom. May we again have the courage to be free.
Start in my heart.
