As we Pray for America, who’s pledge of allegiance recounts that we are “one nation under God”, and whose currency states that it is “in God we trust”, we want American’s to encounter the God who rules over their country. He is the One who gave us this promise in 2 Chronicles 7:14: “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land. As we encounter Him, we will be changed, and will change America through prayer.
Considering we are under attack by atheists, secularists in our schools, military and all around us by Islamists in the world, it's time to pray for America. America was founded as One Nation Under God. 'If we ever forget we are one nation under God, then we will be one nation gone under!'
As much as secularists and atheists hate to admit it, the US is a Christian country with predominately Christian majority living here. Our laws are based on Christian morals and values, it doesn't make us a theocracy, but it means we live by the morals and values the majority of religions follow which is to love our enemy as we love our neighbor, we love the sinner, not the sin. However, we have the right to protect and defend ourselves and our inalienable rights. We have freedom OF religion, not freedom FROM religion as some would like you to believe.
The Establishment clause in the First Amendment was created to protect our rights to practice our religion and be free from government interference or regulation. It doesn't mean we are only limited to practice our faith in our own homes or churches. As Christians we are taught to evangelize and spread the word of God. If we can't proselyze or speak out what our beliefs are then we are being oppressed and living under tyranny. Then we may as well move to NK, where you have to go underground to practice your faith or be killed and imprisoned!
Freedom of religon means we are not persecuted for our beliefs but protected from anyone who tries to censor us or take away our religious freedoms.
