Galatians 5:1, Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.
Freedom has a high value in God’s kingdom—not a freedom to do as you
please, but rather a freedom to please God. Freedom is a gift of God and is to be treasured.
As you pray for America, pray that the spirit of freedom would be rekindled.
Paul encouraged the Galatians to “stand firm” against any attempt to take away
their freedom. There are certainly many today who fear that our freedom to live
lives pleasing to God is being eroded by growing governmental control over many
aspects of our lives. Praying for freedom is praying a kingdom value into our nation.
» Pray for vigilance over any erosion
»Pray that we will not again be bur-
dened with the yoke of slavery.
Thank You, Lord, that You have set
us free from bondage. Thank You for the
founders of our nation who built that love
and respect for freedom into the core of
who we are.
