What other nation is so great as to have their gods near them the way the Lord our God is near us whenever we pray to him? 4:6
Take some time to review how God has been present in your life from childhood until the present day. Do this in the context of a conversation with Jesus where you ask Jesus to bring to your mind where and when he was active in your childhood, your adolescence, as a young adult, middle-age adult and older adult, and in your old age. Then take some time to journal this and thank God for his presence.
Oh Lord, our God, you have given us this good land as our heritage. May we prove ourselves a people mindful of your generosity and glad to do your will. Bless our land with honest industry, truthful education and a way of life that glorifies our Father in heaven. When troubled times come, do not let our trust in you fail. Through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.
