Let Us Pray

An Invocation for the August Camp Meeting

Heavenly Father, we recognize your providence in the midst of nations. We understand that Your good hand promotes freedom, liberty, and justice. We know that self-determination is an attribute of Scriptural truth.

 

We recognize tonight that the Southern cause embraced with all sincerity these good things You have given. In that history these good things were threatened and so our forefathers stood and sacrificed to protect the culture of freedom.

 

We thank you that in this hour we can remember and honor their sacrifice. They welcomed you into the midst of their struggle and we welcome you into this assembly tonight.

 

We thank you for our Confederate heritage. In the name of Jesus Christ our Savior. Amen.

 

 

A Benediction for the August Camp Meeting

We thank you, Father, for that which we have heard and experienced this night. We are reminded of the nobility of the Confederate cause and it is our desire to preserve the historical reality of the struggle.

 

Be with us as we go to our homes. Give us a restful evening and prepare us for the responsibilities of the days which are coming. Allow us to do our duty.

 

In the name of Christ our Savior. Amen.
