God Bless America (In Spite of Herself)

July 4, 2012

God bless America, despite the fact that we do not deserve Your blessing.

We are a wicked people—oppressing the poor and the fatherless, offering up our own children as sacrifices to our own selfishness, every man doing what is right in his own eyes—and yet You have blessed us. Make us grateful for this unspeakable blessing that we may turn from our wickedness and live up to this blessing out of gratitude for Your kindness, before, in Your righteousness, You give us wholly over to our sin and its consequences. We ask these things in the matchless name of Your Son, Our Savior and the Savior of the World.

Amen.
