Outdoor Worship Guide, July 5

Happy 4th of July!  We are grateful to live in the greatest country on the planet.  We have our struggles, but we have our freedoms and dreams.  Let’s be thankful today for the blessings God has given us, but let us also pray for our country.  Let us pray for our leaders, government officials, military, law enforcement, first responders and our neighbors.  Ask the Lord to draw us back to Him in repentance and to heal our land.
