The tradition of Independence Day celebrations goes back to the 18th century and the American Revolution (1775-83). In June 1776, representatives of the 13 colonies then fighting in the revolutionary struggle weighed a resolution that would declare their independence from Great Britain.
On July 2nd, the Continental Congress voted in favor of independence, and two days later its delegates adopted the Declaration of Independence, a historic document drafted by Thomas Jefferson. From 1776 until the present day, July 4th has been celebrated as the birth of American independence, with typical festivities ranging from fireworks, parades and concerts to more casual family gatherings and barbecues.
Independence Day are often accompanied by patriotic songs such as the national anthem, The Star-Spangled Banner, God Bless America, America the Beautiful, My Country Tis of Thee, This Land is Your Land, and Stars and Stripes Forever.
Lord I pray for protection over America keep her safe. I pray that America will repent to You Lord and comes back to The Lord Jesus Christ. Thank You Lord for your Grace and Mercy that You have shown her over the centuries.
