Throughout the Bible, God continually calls us to give thanks, and because of His goodness, we always have reason to do exactly that. Consider too the reasons we can give thanks: we have freedom, privileges, and blessings that people in other parts of the world would struggle to imagine. It is absolutely fitting that we give thanks to the Lord for our country even as we pray for its future. May we faithfully pray each day for wisdom and discernment for every citizen.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
The joy of the Lord is our strength; therefore, let us rejoice as a nation as a people who have been blessed beyond all that we could ask or conceive. Let us pray each day for Your divine guidance, O Lord, and never forget Your benefits. Thank You, Lord, that You welcome us to Your throne of grace to receive Your blessing.
