America the Beautiful!

O beautiful for spacious skies, For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties, Above the fruited plain!
America! America! God shed his grace on thee
And crown thy good with brotherhood, From sea to shining sea!

Yeah...I'm feeling a bit patriotic this morning. LOL.  I hope this isn't a sin or something, but I love my country!  A Christian first and foremost...then my family, then the church...and then the good ol US of A.  I was honored to fight for her in the United States military, and I'm still honored fight for her as she slides further into immorality.

Lord, please bless our Nation. Please continue to heal the wounds of those who lost loved ones on this day, twelve years ago. But also Lord, please heal our backslidings, our immorality, and our idolatry.

Please protect our Nation. Cause us to repent. Protect those who protect us...our military, law enforcement, fire-fighters, and medical professionals. And please protect the church...its pastors and people.

In Jesus Name.
