Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying: ‘Whom shall I send, And who will go for Us?’ Then I said ‘Here am I! Send me.’ ” Isaiah 6:8
Who can understand the heart of a soldier? The freedoms they have afforded us, we often take for granted every day. The sacrifices of their families not realized by many.
“I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”
“One Nation under God” is a recognition of our country’s faith in God. Our country was dedicated to God on it’s inception. The United States of America has a rich heritage of faith in God for our protection. Our Nations might has always been in it’s spirit, it’s soldier’s hearts.
Many of us feel our country has turned away from God. The Word of God was the very cornerstone of this country. A solider’s heart I will never completely understand but I am thankful to God for them and their families. These are perilous times we live in today. As many of us go about our daily lives, our first line of defense is in our soldier’s hearts.
Thank you everyone who has served in our Armed Forces of this “One Nation Under God”. Whether you recognize the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob as your God or not, He is using you also to protect and defend a Nation that was founded on His Word. For those who do recognize the Word of God on which this Nation was founded, we as citizens are blessed and honored to have you standing in the gap before the Lord on behalf of our Nation.
Today we pray and honor all who serve and have served. Today, we as Christians, stand in the gap for you and pray for your protection and continued strength in Jesus name; we pray for the heart of a soldier. Amen. – Donna Warren
