Praying for our Nation be Safe: Merry Christmas
We pray for our nation be safe, and with our courageous people Be the guiding light of the world.
AND we leave you all with some patriotic fascinating Quotes from one of the Forefathers of our nation= Samuel Adams:
“We shall never be abandoned by Heaven while we act worthy of its aid and protection.”
“The name of the Lord (says the Scripture) is a strong tower; thither the righteous flee and are safe (Proverbs 18:10). Let us secure His favor and He will lead us through the journey of this life and at length receive us to a better.”
“Principally, and first of all, I resign my soul to the Almighty Being who gave it, and my body I commit to the dust, relying on the merits of Jesus Christ for the pardon of my sins.”
“The right to freedom is the gift of God Almighty….The rights of the Colonists as Christians may be best understood by reading, and carefully studying the institutes of the great Lawgiver and head of the Christian Church: which are to be found clearly written and promulgated in the New Testament.”
“If virtue & knowledge are diffused among the people, they will never be enslav’d. This will be their great security.”
“If men of wisdom and knowledge, of moderation and temperance, of patience, fortitude and perseverance, of sobriety and true republican simplicity of manners, of zeal for the honour of the Supreme Being and the welfare of the commonwealth; if men possessed of these other excellent qualities are chosen to fill the seats of government, we may expect that our affairs will rest on a solid and permanent foundation.”
“The sum of all is, if we would most truly enjoy the gift of Heaven, let us become a virtuous people; then shall we both deserve and enjoy it. While on the other hand, if we are universally vicious and debauched in our manners, though the form of our Constitution carries the face of the most exalted freedom, we shall in reality be the most abject slaves.”
“He therefore is the truest friend to the liberty of his country who tries most to promote its virtue, and who, so far as his power and influence extend, will not suffer a man to be chosen into any office of power and trust who is not a wise and virtuous man…”
AND then we remember this poem by Kenneth J. Goodrich:
“The Real student of Light faces the Light and sends the Light before him.
America! America! My blissed I AM Country!
The Light of God that never fails.
America! Tis Thee. America! America!
The Cup that holds the Christ-Light that will light the planet wide.
America, my love for thee, let her freedom reign without divide.”
