WE AS A NATION WILL HONOR THE AMERICAN FLAG ON "FLAG DAY"

The United States Flag Code stipulates that as the symbol of a living country, the flag is considered in itself a living thing. The original pledge was published in the September 8, 1892, issue of The Youth's Companion in Boston even though Flag Day goes back past 1777. Woodrow Wilson established Flag Day. On June 14th, 1949 this day of remembrance became the National Flag Day. The phrase "under God" was added to the pledge on June 14, 1954.

THE PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE TO THE FLAG IS A BEAUTIFUL DESCRIPTION OF WHAT THE FLAG MEANS TO EACH OF US

I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

"The Lord foils the plans of the nations.....Blessed is the Nation whose God is the Lord, the people He chose for his inheritance." - PSALMS 33:10-12 (NIV)

Please lift up our Nation as we enter into this season of the year. Pray for our military and each family both past and present for their sacrifice. Pray our flag will always stand for freedom and "one Nation under God with liberty and justice for all." Pray our flag will be honored around the world as the flag that represents this freedom as a Nation and under the authority of Almighty God.

Please lift up all of our elected officials. Pray for a move of the Holy Spirit in Washington DC and over our entire nation. Pray for the protection of Israel and our stand with that Nation.

Pray for God's wisdom in the Gulf crisis. Pray the pipe will be closed off quickly and this crisis will never happen again. Lift up the health reform bill, the educational system, the stock market, energy in America, the environment, young people of America and their issues with drugs, suicide, pornography, and their future. Lift up every prayer request sent to us: loss of a child, cancer, ministries, churches, divorce, relationships, finances, loss of jobs, missionaries, Christian persecution, and car accidents.

Thank you for your support and prayers. Please go to our web site and get involved. Also sign up on face book with the Christian Coalition of America. We need you and your voice does count.

With warmest Love,
