Wednesday Worship~America the Beautiful

Psalm 46 (NIV)

God is our refuge and strength,
an ever-present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear, though the
earth give way
and the mountains fall into the
heart of the sea,
though its waters roar and foam
and the mountains quake with their

There is a river whose streams make
glad the city of God,
the holy place where the Most High 
God is within her, she will not fall;
God will help her at break of day,
Nations are in uproar, Kingdoms fall;
He lifts His voice, the earth melts.

The LORD Almighty is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress.

Come and see the works of the LORD,
the desolations He has brought on
the earth.
He makes wars cease to the ends of 
the earth;
He breaks the bow and shatters the spear,
He burns the shields with fire.
"Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth."

The LORD Almighty is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress.

May we indeed "Be still, and know that [He is] God," the Creator of our great land. We pray His blessing and protection upon our country and on those who serve so bravely and selflessly. May all His peoples be drawn to Him and His loving care.
