Following Pawhuska’s 4th of July parade, the Ministerial Alliance invites everyone to join them at the Cultural Park’s Janet Holcombe Gazebo. From there, the delegation will proceed south to the Memorial Park and circle the flag. According to organizer, Jody Hull, ‘We want to take this opportunity to pray for our Nation and its leadership, to call on God to bless us as a nation again and heal our land. We also want to pray for Pawhuska and the wonderful people who live here."

In submitting this invitation, Hull included this letter:

Our founding fathers didn’t believe in a Godless Constitution, but were led by a deep belief in God. Their revolutionary ideas came from their belief and knowledge of the Bible. In 1765, theologian John Locke wrote two treaties of government which cited the Bible 1,500 times. The authors of the Declaration of Independence looked to these treaties and the true original intent of civil government for the truths and rights found in America’s Constitution and Bill of Rights.

America is the longest, ongoing Constitutional Republic in the world with three branches of government and checks and balances to keep one branch from having too much power. We know the Bible was influential in the beliefs of our founding fathers. Thousands of sermons came from pulpits at the time of our Nation’s birth with Biblical references to human rights.

Coming forward to 1892, the Supreme Court unanimously decided that we are a Christian Nation and cited 87 different reasons to back up their decisions."

Proverbs 28:2: "When there is moral rot within a nation, its government topples easily; but, with wise knowledgeable leaders, there is stability."

II Chronicles 7:14: "If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and heal their land."

Patrick Henry: "I know no way of judging the future, but by the past."

Daniel Webster: "History is God’s providence in human affairs."

May God Bless America.
