A Time to Give Thanks and Pray

 

Setting aside the partisanship that has polarized the political scene, let us pause as one Nation under God to remember with gratitude and honor those who served their Country!  

We express our deepest gratitude to families who lost loved ones in the service of our Nation.

  • Pray for God’s abiding comfort for them.
  • Pray for those currently serving in the Armed Services and other branches of government at home and abroad.
  • Pray also for those who serve our Fire and police departments.
  • Pray especially for our leaders in government to exercise caution and wisdom before committing to future military conflicts.

Finally, and most importantly, let us give thanks to the One who gave His life for us and our sins. 

“I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth. For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all people.” (I Timothy 2:1-6)

with gratitude and prayer,

Steve Cornell
