This past Sunday we gave honor to our country as we celebrated our Independence Day weekend. Special music, intercessory prayers, and a dedication of a new flag to fly on our church flagpole, were a part of the day's activities. 1 Timothy 2 instructs us to pray for national leaders so that we may lead "quiet and peaceful" lives. As you observe the July 4 Holiday, I encourage you to observe the words of Paul, and to pray for our nation and its leaders.
Thank you and happy Independence Day!
