Earlier today, I was praying for America. Honestly I wasn’t putting a great deal of effort into it; in fact, I was actually pretty busy doing other things. But the second I paused and asked God, “How do I pray for America?” I heard the word COURAGE.
The immediacy of the answer struck me. I wasn’t really expecting to hear anything at all, but I heard it still.
America needs courage. I felt almost frantic about it. Courage for America!!
I began praying courage over my great country and my mind was immediately filled with the scenes of a battlefield, it seemed from the Revolutionary War. I saw blood being spilled as men died for the very essence of life and freedom and what they believed – and my heart ached. The men who fought in that war, like so many other brave soldiers, fought with a courage most people live their whole life never encountering. These men sowed into their new country, not knowing if they would even live to see the fruits of their efforts. What did they sow?
I was reminded of a promise from God, actually a spiritual law He composed:
…For whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.
The law of reaping and sowing gave me hope. America has the blood, sweat, and tears of COURAGE sown into her. From her very conception!
I felt like the Lord was encouraging me…Pray courage over America, she needs to be reminded where she came from.
Humbly, I ask you to join with me in praying COURAGE over America…
Let’s remind her who she really is!
This is the Star-Spangled Banner by Madison Rising. Let me just say, it makes me beam with pride as an American and IT ROCKS!!!
