God Bless America

God bless America, Land that I love,

Stand beside her and guide her

Thru the night with a light from above;
From the mountains, to the prairies,

To the oceans white with foam,

God bless America,

My home, sweet home.

God bless America,

My home, sweet home.

“God Bless America” was written by Irving Berlin as a prayer in 1918 but was not published until 1938 when he revised the words and music. He wanted the song to be sung to promote victory over the treatment of the Jewish people by Hitler in World War II. Berlin wrote many Patriotic songs to encourage the troops as they fough that war.

“God Bless America” has become the unofficial American anthem and is known and sung by many. After September 11, 2001 both Democrats and Republicans joined together to sing it as a prayer. 

On this Memorial Day weekend as we reflect on the victories and defeats we at SOS Events ministry would encourage you to pray for our nation today. We live in the greatest nation of the world but we are loosing our freedoms as evil is on every side, from without and from within.

The Bible gives the answer if we would just listen.

 2 Chronicles 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall 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.
