National Medal of Honor Day

National Medal of Honor Day

Today is National Medal of Honor Day here in the United States.  It is a day when we recognize those soldiers who have gone above and beyond the call of duty in battle.  The Medal of Honor is our military’s highest award for brave acts of valor and it is normally awarded by the President.

“Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.”

Jesus speaking in John 15:13

During this time of national crisis, I salute and thank all those who have so bravely laid down their lives, so we can be free.  Bravery and courage are at the core of who we are as Americans.  We have faced many enemies in our short 244 year history as a country, and Coronavirus is just one more.  Let us face this new enemy with the same bravery and courage as those who earned the prestigious Medal of Honor.

In It Together

Our strength comes from the Lord and He wants us to be strong and courageous.  He gives us power to face our enemies head on and overcome them!  May the Lord give us the strength and courage we need to overcome this worldwide threat!  Nothing is too hard for the Lord and nothing is impossible for Him!

“Have I not commanded you?  Be strong and courageous.  Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.”

Joshua 1:9

“For nothing is impossible with God.”

Luke 1:37

“I am the Lord, the God of all mankind.  Is anything too hard for me?”

Jeremiah 32:27

The Lord can do all things and He blesses us when we act courageously for righteousness.  Please remember to pray for all the doctors, nurses, soldiers, and first responders who are helping the sick and fighting the virus at risk to their own lives.  May God protect them, bless them, and give them wisdom as they work to bring healing and save lives.  May the Lord protect us all and may He bring a swift end to the virus!

Take heart!  God is in control and God does not want us to be afraid.  He is with us, even now, and we must be strong and courageous!

“For I am the LORD, your God,

who takes hold of your right hand

and says to you, Do not fear;

I will help you.”

Isaiah 41:13

“Do not let your hearts be troubled.  Trust in God; trust also in me.”

Jesus speaking in John 14:1

God hears our prayers in Jesus’ Name and He is helping us.  Take hold of His hand and do not fear!  Trust in Jesus, be strong, and stand firm with a courageous heart!  He will give us the victory!

Grace and peace to you all!

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

Jesus speaking in John 3:16

  1. May we continue to use prayer to cover our health care professionals, who are working in harm’s way. There are many of us who have family, friends, or acquaintances who are working on the front lines during these challenging times.

  2. Amen!!! Thank you for this victory prayer, Ryan, it was most needed and appreciated by everyone! From our troops to the medical professionals and volunteers…God bless them, they are doing the work of God. And, to those who are stepping up to make masks, etc., our truckers and railroaders delivering our food and other necessities, Israel’s generosity with sending us medicine, those who are working around the clock, God bless you. Stay strong everyone and prayerful, God is with us! What a happy, happy, thankful day it will be when this is over. Praise God!!! Thank you, Ryan, your message was so hopeful and reassuring!
