National Prayer Day
May 5, 2011 by USA Post
National Prayer Day, This week millions of Americans who attend the breakfasts, lunches and evening services throughout the country to honor God. The theme this year is “A Mighty Fortress Is Our God” from Psalm 91:2: “I tell the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, I trust.”
Ironically, at the same time, our Christian spiritual heritage is being eroded, bit by bit, to consider anything else. Note: On 14 April, a federal appeals court ruled that the National Day of Prayer is legitimate, and ordered that a claim (Freedom from Religion Foundation), is unconstitutional on the grounds the case be dismissed.
It was our Christian nation from the beginning? If so, we remain a Christian nation today?
Many modernist scholars argue that the United States was never a Christian nation and was totally secular from the beginning. This is the lie that is perpetuated by the revisionists and the history taught in our public schools today. Those of us who still remember and have studied the historical writings know the truth, but our children and grandchildren are taught a revised history. Modern curriculum ignores God, His providence and expression of the historical founders of our nation’s spiritual creation.
In 1831, a French statesman, historian, Alexis de Tocqueville, visited America and wrote what is still described as “the most comprehensive and penetratinganlysis of the relationship between character and society in America…” Some of his observations:
“Religion in America … must be regarded as the most important political institutions of that country….”
About the many existing Christian sects in the U.S., said … “Each sect adores the Deity in his own peculiar way, but all sects preach the same moral law in the name of God … Moreover, all the sects in the United States fall within the great unity of Christianity, and Christian morality is everywhere the same. ”
“In the United States the sovereign authority is religious … there is no country in the world where the Christian religion retains a greater influence over the souls of men in the United States, and there can be no greater proof of its utility and its according to human nature that their influence was felt strongly in the more enlightened and free nation on earth. ”
In modern, enlightened America, there is a distinct movement to disinherit our Christian heritage, which separates religion from our American character, our national soul, if you will. Organizations like the American Civil Liberties Union and others have influenced the courts and the judiciary the removal of God from public life only to be displayed in on Saturday.
Direct and indirect results are evident in the disintegration of morality and knowledge of God. And we just have to explore the media – newspapers, television, cinema and the Internet – to see the depths of depravity to which we have fallen. The rising tsunami of immorality through the dissemination of our country threatens our freedom, our freedom, our security and our national soul.
Patriotism, Tocqueville noted: “The Americans combine the concepts of Christianity and liberty so intimately in their minds, it is impossible to make them conceive of one without the other…. Christianity is the companion of liberty in all its conflicts – the cradle of its infancy and the divine source of its claims. “Without God, there is liberty.
We saw the U.S. patriotism stayed awake after 9 / 11 with the explosion of people across our country from falling to his knees, tears, crying to God. Overnight Old Glory flew from flagpoles and the millions graceful red, white and blue of the homes, schools and workplaces across the country. “God Bless America”?? Was heard and painted on signs hung everywhere. Millions prayed.
Christians have not stopped praying since the 9 / 11 for our leaders, our people and the troops, our nation, and our enemies. We pray for the Spirit of God to bring revival in our land and push back the darkness of the blind to His truth. Our spiritual soul is alive and well.
Writers of history can revise history, atheists can expel the Christians in the closet, and people can choose to ignore God. But the strong bonds of Christianity and liberty that bound the first settlers, the founding fathers, people and their dependence on God is not going to die. Parents and churches, which are the guardians of the spiritual heritage of the United States, will convey to future generations.
As we eat together, can be our focus on God, our repentance and forgiveness, His providence and continued blessings on our nation.
