A Prayer For Our Nation

In celebrating America, we must first celebrate the author of our freedom. A great video to lead your congregation in prayer and thanksgiving for our nation.


Let Us Pray For America

These are very difficult times for America. There is hurt, confusion, and division. This Independence Day, we pray to the God who changes seasons, establishes kings, gives wisdom and understanding. This 4th of July, we declare our dependence on you, God. We need things to change, and only you can do it. Our hope is in you, Lord.


Heal Our Land

America is a nation in great need of God. In the midst of our freedoms, we have forgotten our first love. We have lost sight of the principles on which we were founded. We have forgotten that true independence is found in our dependence on God. Today, we humbly pray for God to hear His people…and heal our land.


The Land Of The Free

America’s founding fathers envisioned a new nation that would become the land of the free and the home of the brave. On July 4th (Independence Day), we celebrate that freedom with fireworks, picnics, and baseball games. But, this video reminds us that true freedom comes from God, and that all of America’s blessings come from God. Let’s celebrate America, on July 4th, because “God shed His grace on thee”.


Freedom Is

There are so many ways to illustrate our freedom, and none more powerful than what happened on the cross of Jesus. Works great for Independence Day, or any other patriotic day.


Dependence (A Prayer For Our Nation)

We live in a Nation which has slowly forgotten the principles on which it was founded. We have lost our foundation of faith. We enjoy living in freedom, but have lost sight of where that freedom comes from. Our prayer today is for our Nation to return to its roots. Our hope is for America to remember its dependence on God.


Celebrate America

Our great nation was founded on the Gospel of Jesus Christ. As we celebrate our independence, let us not forget our dependence on God, our foundation of faith and our need for His hand to guide us.

The Word On Freedom

While freedom is a value we hold as people and nations, its fullest and most liberating expression comes from God. Citing inspirational passages of Scripture, this video shows that the ultimate form of freedom is revealed in God’s Word - and made possible by His Son.


Already Free

Freedom, liberty. It’s something we celebrate, something we take pride in, something we have struggled so hard for and have so strongly defended. But true freedom, we don’t have to fight for, we just have to accept it from Christ.


Our Nation’s Inspiration

Using quotes from our Founding Fathers, this video leaves no debate that our country was founded on Christian principles, and even on Christ Himself. It is sure to inspire-and even surprise-everyone in your congregation.


Why We Celebrate Freedom

Celebrating the historical legacy of freedom remains one of our most important traditions. Knowing why we celebrate freedom is even more important: because it’s what God created us to be, a gift He freely gave us, but is only preserved at the highest cost.


Prayer For Free People

As believers, we celebrate freedoms that go beyond rights and borders. The prayer in this mini movie praises God for our freedoms in Christ and asks for his help not to squander those freedoms in serving self, but to spend every ounce of freedom we’ve been give following after him.
