Let’s Say A Thanksgiving Prayer For 2020

This Thanksgiving Americans have much to be thankful for; we live in a relatively free country, and despite our ongoing military action in the Middle East the World is relatively peaceful, and, it is a time of unparalleled prosperity.

But there’s nothing that says it must stay that way.

Our situation today is much more like what the Pilgrims actually gave thanks for on that first Thanksgiving than most modern Americans would care to admit; they gave thanks not because all dangers or impediments to their success had been removed, but because things were not as bad as they were previously.

So, in much the same way as the Pilgrims gave thanks for God’s forbearance and help in producing a crop adequate to their needs – we should give thanks for the vast improvement in our lives that has occurred in the three years since Donald Trump was elected President.

The results of the 2016 election preserved for us the possibility – no guarantee – but the possibility that we, with the help of God and our fellow conservatives, can turn our country from the road to destruction that it has travelled the past several decades.

In giving thanks for God’s help in retaining in America the prospect of a return to constitutional liberty under God’s laws we should give special thanks for the thousands of individuals who ran for public office and campaigned on the principles of limited government constitutional conservatism.

And we should give thanks for the selfless millions of men and women who walked the precincts, made the phone calls, sent the letters and email and did the myriad of other tasks necessary to win the 2016 election and renew the hope for freedom the Pilgrims had when they landed in the New World.

We should also recall that the Pilgrims didn’t just give thanks for what they had; they gave thanks for the freedom to pursue what they – with God’s help – might yet achieve.

We constitutional conservatives find ourselves in much the same position today.

By electing Donald Trump, we, and our country, in effect survived the long harsh winter of the Obama years, but there’s no guarantee that we will succeed in our goal of governing America according to limited government constitutional conservative principles.  To do that will require many more years of hard work.

So, we should pray most fervently that those who worked so hard in 2016 to bring us to this point will make those same sacrifices again in 2020.

This Thanksgiving let’s give thanks for the fruits of the hard work we, and our fellow conservatives put forth to elect Donald Trump, let’s give thanks for our conservative leaders from the local precinct captains to our national leaders, like Tony Perkins and Morton Blackwell, for principled conservative judges like Justice Clarence Thomas, and legislators like Representatives Jim Jordan, Mark Meadows, Devin Nunes and Andy Biggs and Senators Rand Paul, Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley.

And most importantly, let’s pray for the continued strength to see the 2020 election through to a successful conclusion; to elect Donald Trump and a conservative majority in Congress who will fight and win the many battles and overcome the many hurdles that stand between us and our goal of governing America according to limited government constitutional conservative principles.
