A Prayer For Our Country

Today is President’s Day.  When I was young, we actually had 2 holidays in February, Washington’s birthday and Lincoln’s birthday.  And in school we learned about both these great men and what they did for our country.

Naturally, both were human and not perfect.  But both did incredible things and led the country through incredibly rough times, particularly because we were waging war on our very own soil.  We learned a lot about faith, courage, strength, fortitude, leadership, as well as humility, kindness, compassion, truth, honesty, and unity.  These were men you could emulate!

Today many things have changed, and it seems the country has turned its back on many of these lessons, virtues,  qualities, and values that garnered so much pride, and success for our country.

I pray that we will be unified not divisive, faithful not taunting, humble not prideful, helpful not hurtful, remembering our past as we build a grand and glorious future.  🙂
