The American Flag
Our American Flag reminds us when it waves at us in the breeze that we are free. We are free to dream big dreams. We are free to hear God in our hearts and do what God says in this country. We can do hard things because we are strong. Our nation is strong because we stick together and are united like a bunch of bananas.
We shine bright like the stars because God's love is in us. His love burns like a fire in us. We share God's love. The Patriots pray and release His Power into each other. We can help others be strong because God loves Us (United States), and had a big dream.
When you look at our American flag, remember that it represents God's Big dream. You are a bright shiny star. God is proud of you. You let His love be big in you. You are unique. You are special. You are important in this country. You will be like Ben Franklin when he was on his walks. He had “God” ideas! God gave him a big job to do. God will give you jobs to do. God's Holy Spirit will help you to have the courage to do what God tells YOU! You will make the right choices! You will TRUST IN GOD!

Father in Heaven,
We pray for the Little Patriots in Delaware and New Jersey that Your Holy Spirit will put Your love in their hearts for You (like a lamp that burns bright) and for our country.; And to know the Truth (Jesus) who makes the U.S. free.
