March 27th – Monday

Keep your life free from love of money and be content with what you have. – Hebrews 13:5

The Battle of Horseshoe Bend, fought on this date in 1814 in present-day Alabama, was a pivotal moment in American history. The U.S. forces were led by General Andrew Jackson against the Creek Indian Nation. The outcome was a decisive victory for General Jackson, and ended the Creek war. Andrew Jackson was then able to make a successful bid for the White House, becoming the nation’s seventh president. In his role as the head of the executive branch, he continued the oppression of native people with the passage of the Indian Removal Act and brought about the Trail of Tears. As the nation lives with the consequences of inhumane actions the government has taken, pray that those in positions of authority would seek the Lord in how to bring about healing and reconciliation.

As the Lord leads, pray with us…

  • For Assistant Secretary of Indian Affairs Bryan Newland as he seeks to support indigenous nations.
  • For Interior Secretary Deb Haaland as she collaborates with Native American tribes in the stewardship of public lands and resources.
