The first Thursday of May is the National Day of Prayer in our country.
This year, we had a service in our community for the event. It was held at a church I had never been to, and it was a beautiful experience. It was a memorable experience to sit in a room full of Americans and celebrate the foundations of this country - the religious principles that have guided us since the beginning. We formed a prayer circle and lifted our prayers for our government, our military, our teachers, our judges. I was able to add CPT Guy in Afghanistan and SGT James in Iraq to our circle of prayer. They are in my daily prayers, but today they received the prayers of other Americans. I am pleased to have been able to attend.
May God continue to Bless this country and to guide her.
