God Keep Our Land...

I am reminded of all the times we hear U.S. leaders asking God to bless their nation. We as Canadians are rather mundane when it comes to the patriotic expression of love for our country. But I am beginning to feel more and more it is our duty as christians to pray for our nation and its leaders.

To that end I was encouraged to hear our newly elected Prime Minister ask for God's blessing during his acceptance speech. So I wish to continue that request here by saying...May God Bless Canada...and all God's people said_ _ _ _!

God bless Canada!

Indeed, may Canada be blessed.

I remember when I was very young seeing a satirical sketch show on t.v. in the 1980s. I did not understand much. But I remeber this sketch:

Ronald Reagen said 'God bless America'.

Mikael Gorbachev said 'God bless Russia'.

Margaret Thatcher said 'God help England.'

A wonderful sentiment and I join in your prayer.

Matthew, I truly believe we must hold onto God and not let go until He blesses us.

Kc, thanks for your agreement.

Amen, Jim!
