"Oh beautiful, for spacious skies, ...America! America! God shed His grace on thee..." & "God bless America!"... Yes, God has bless the United States of America with a very diverse beautiful landscape. Some say this is the "new" "Promise Land" that is mentioned a lot in the Bible (espeically the Old Testament). It has been a land that "nations" have come to make this a "melting pot" of ethnic groups blending together.
I've had the opportunity to see much of this beautiful land so far at age 26: East Coast-Massachussetts, New York City, and New Jersey; Southeast-Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Tennessee; Midwest-Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Minnesota, North Dakotah, Nebraska, and South Dakotah; Northwest-Montana, Colorado; Southwest-Arizona. I've tried various transportations: planes, train, buses, automobiles.
I even did a story of my Road Trip experience! This is an on-going story, like many of my other weblinks I've made.
Below are some links I found of their adventures through this beautiful land:

However, like many other "great nations" (Babylon, Persia, Roman Empire, etc..) before us.."what comes up, must come down". C'mon, you can't expect this lifestyle we live in will continue? Espeically, the way it has been (abortion and all sorts of idolism-see issues!! For example, Sodom and Gomorrah in Genesis 19).
What should we do as a nation? Well, remember back in 9-11 when numbers flocked to local churches and repented-asking God to forgive us individually and generally of our sins as a nation? We need to continue to do this every day, while keep blessing other nations (amongst the ethnic groups God is sending to our nation too!) through missions!
"if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land."-2 Chronicles 7:14
"For you are all sons (and daughters) of God
through faith in Christ Jesus...There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is
neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are
all one in Christ Jesus." - Galatians 3:26 and 28
I-35 Highway of Holiness Campaign Begins in Laredo and Duluth
Campaign Will Unite North and South of United States in Prayer
By Jeremy Reynalds
Correspondent for ASSIST News Service "DALLAS (ANS) -- The 35 days of ï¿½I-35: Highway of Holiness,ï¿½ will begin this weekend with pre-kickoff events in Laredo, Texas, and Duluth, Minn., the ends of the interstate.
The I-35 initiative is part of Light the Highway, a movement organizers hope will bring spiritual reformation to cities, regions and ultimately nations.
We want to start to build a Highway of Holiness for God that unites our nation, from the Canadian border to the Mexican border, and eventually extends around the world,ï¿½ said Cindy Jacobs, founder of Light the Highway, in a news release.
At least 12 cities along I-35 will host 24-hour prayer rooms for the duration of the initiative. Young people will hold ï¿½Purity Sieges,ï¿½ in which they will ï¿½lay siegeï¿½ by praying at sites of impurity in their cities, such as abortion clinics and pornography stores.
The initiative was inspired by Isaiah 35:8, which reads, ï¿½A highway will be there, a roadway, and it will be called the Highway of Holiness. The unclean will not travel on it, but it will be for him who walks that way, and fools will not wander on it. "
