Our kind Heavenly Father
We have come to the end of another decade.
We affirm unto Thee that this past decade
has been one of abundant blessings.
We are grateful that for most of the past ten
years, our sons and daughters have been
spared the horrors of war.
We are grateful for this beautiful, magnificent
country. We are highly favored to be living in
We are grateful, that, in this land, the Bible is
an open book, and the Church has open doors.
We are grateful for the freedom of speech and
press, and for the freedom to pursue happiness
as we please.
May we bless Thee in the nineties as Thou hast
blessed us in the eighties.
We thankfully give thanks for your constant presence
in the name of Jesus Christ.
