Thanksgiving is far too often overshadowed by the retail frenzy of the Christmas—make that the (politically correct) "holiday"—season. Yet if it weren't for the events we as Americans celebrate at Thanksgiving, we likely wouldn't have 200+ years of history as the most powerful, most freedom-loving nation this world has ever known. And there's no telling where we’d be if it weren't for the God who blessed those first settlers and allowed them to pave the way for the United States of America to become a reality more than 150 years later.
The National Center for Life and Liberty exists in large part because what is happening in our nation today is the antithesis of why these first men and women left their homelands, faced tremendous uncertainty, and braved sickness, stormy seas, and great danger. They came for one primary purpose: religious freedom. Yet that one thing they cherished most about living in their new land—that freedom for which they risked everything—is being stripped away. If it hasn’t already impacted you in a tangible sense, it will. Many individuals are already feeling the impact of these assaults in many venues across the nation, and that is exactly why the staff of the NCLL goes to work every day. We are fighting to stop the advance of those who wish to destroy religious freedom on the altar of “equality” and to protect the rights of parents, pastors, and individual citizens to enjoy the rights and liberties recognized by our founders in the Declaration of Independence—life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness—and those enumerated by the framers of the US Constitution.
Our mission is front and center to everything we do, and your financial gifts are what make that possible. Here’s just a sampling of what you—our supporter and friend—helped us accomplish in the last couple of weeks. NCLL attorneys:
We could not do what we do without your financial assistance and your prayers on our behalf. Thank you. Throughout the next few weeks, please take some time to pray for the following situations:
These are just a few of the ongoing needs and burdens that our friends and supporters are bearing right now. Please pray for them and that God would give the attorneys and staff of the NCLL wisdom and discernment in these situations so that we can advance the Kingdom for the glory of God.
