Lord and Lady, please watch over our country during these troubled and confusing times.
Preserve our freedom of speech and religion while protecting us from harm and persecution.
Keep evil and strife far from us all and help us all to strive to remember the values our country was founded on.
Let there be liberty and justice for all and harm to none!
Hail to thee Columbia – may your light shine upon our country always!
I wrote this prayer in response to the whole DC40 debacle that’s going on. I have a candle dedicated to Columbia and will be holding a nightly ritual to send my energy to help our country. I love my country, and I like it the way it is…to me, separation of church and state is a wonderful thing.
I love my little state as well…I don’t want it to be renamed. The Ocean State is a great name, if someone feels that it needs to be renamed The Miracle State, then maybe they need to actually come here look at our ocean and our shore line and realize that its already a miracle in its own right because of those very aspects.
Roger Williams founded Rhode Island on the basis of freedom of religion. I recently took the time to look up the Rhode Island Charter which was written in 1663 and found it quite inspiring…
That our royall will and pleasure is, that noe person within the say colonye, at any tyme hereafter, shall bee any wise molested, punished, disquieted, or called in question, for any differences in opinione in matters of religion, and doe not actually disturb the civill peace of our sayd colony; but that all and everye person and persons may, from tyme to tyme, and at all tymes hereafter, freelye and fullye have and enjoye his and theire owne judgments and consciences, in matters of religious concernments,

Best I stop here for now, I’m planning on doing more about Rhode Island the day before the DC40 invade us…and my dander is up for the moment LOL I might get carried away. As for right now...Hawaii, I'm praying for you tonight...Goddess bless!
