Memorial Day Prayer
Father, Lord God, Almighty,
As a nation, we come before You today,
On this Memorial Day weekend, to honor those
Who paid the ultimate sacrifice that we might remain free.
How can we express our gratitude to them in a way that
Doesn’t seem trite and doesn’t show proper deference?
Truthfully, there are no words that are adequate,
No expression of gratitude that equal what
These mighty men of valor have done for us,
Since our nation’s inception in the eighteenth century.
Nevertheless, it is our duty and our great privilege to try.
So, with profound respect, a full heart, and misty eyes,
We bow our heads in reverence and gratitude to You
For raising up so many patriotic warriors over the years—
From the time of the Revolution to our destructive Civil War,
From the World Wars all the way to the Middle Eastern conflicts.
Let their loving sacrifice be a perpetual reminder, etched in our hearts,
That the price of freedom will always remain high,
Especially in our dark nation that now venerates the depraved.
From the beginning, You put it in the hearts of our forefathers
For America to be a “City on a Hill” for the entire world to emulate.
Now, let us pause on this weekend to remember those who died,
That we, the living, would continue to answer the perpetual call
To fight for freedom and righteousness for the American people.
In Your graciousness, Father, You have allowed our generation
To remain free and prosperous, despite our infidelities.
We admit our wrongdoing and ask that You continue to be merciful.
We thank You for being gracious and know that
Every measure of the abundance we enjoy daily comes from You
And from those who gave their lives that we might
Continue to champion their vision to laude American exceptionalism.
Thank You for Your continued blessings upon our great nation.
As we reflect today, let us never forget what was required
To make the United States the greatest nation in the history of Mankind,

Retaking the USA: From Darkness and Depravity
Stand Firm Against Progressivism Knowing profound change must occur, if we are to survive as the land of the free and the home of the brave, it is clear that a group of patriotic Christians and others of faith must be strong enough, committed enough and determined enough to make a stand. Only then can the course of American history be altered, precisely like it was in the Revolutionary era.What is needed, however, isn’t simply a renewal in patriotism. Our need is more fundamental than this. If we want change that will last, if we want our core values to be restored, if we want our way of life to flourish once again, we are the ones who will need to change—not the Progressives. Being degenerate by nature, most of them are incapable of changing—not for the better anyway.This is not true for us. If we change, America will change. If we don’t, the Children of Darkness will secure their victory and the United States we have known will cease to exist. To survive and once again thrive, we must embrace the fact that Christ placed us in this position. It is for such a time as this that we have been groomed. It is up to us, ordinary people, to stand strong for the USA. Nothing less than a renewed commitment to godliness will accomplish the goal we desire. This is why Retaking the USA: From Darkness and Depravity has been written. If you read the book, it will change you forever—no doubt about it.
