In His Praise – May 30, 2021

Welcome to “In His Praise!”

God bless America

Land that I  love.

Stand beside her,

And guide her,

Through the night 

With a light from above.

From the mountains, 

to the prairies,

 to the oceans white with foam.

God bless America,

My home sweet home.

God bless America,

My home sweet home.

“God bless America.” These are familiar words and are spoken often by politicians, soldiers, and ordinary people. We sing them at ball games, we recite them at school and we may even use them  as a battlecry. But do we really take time to think about their deep meaning?  

“God bless America!” Are we praying for God’s divine goodness to be poured out upon our country or are we simply repeating words? There is a big difference.

When we think of this song as a prayer, asking for God’s blessings and guidance, it becomes more than just words. We are intervening for our homeland and petitioning God for His goodness. We are acknowledging that we need God’s sovereignty. We are praying not just for ourselves, but for all Americans and we are praising God for such a good land.

So the next time you sing these words or hear this familiar tune, take a second to think about it. Let us ever be grateful for God’s blessings and always willing to thank Him; and may God continue to bless America.
