Bonita Burney Simmons the spiritual thermostat has offered a plea to and for America to offer God his due in 2020 with the heartfelt lament America Bless God. America Bless God was birthed out of the need to be transparent and forgiven by God for being selfish. As individuals, as a nation, we America have been blessed by God. So, now, it is time for us, America to Bless God! My prayer is that this song brings an awareness to the hearers that we’ve been spoiled and that more than ever it is time for us to give God what He is so deserving of praise, honor and glory.
II Chronicles 7:14 is our template and prayer to bring healing to America. When we repent, God promised to forgive our sins and heal our lands.

One of her biggest accomplishments is her outreach work with those who are incarcerated, sharing God’s love through song. Indeed, Bonita has defined her own success, choosing to embrace an obedient lifestyle according to God’s will for her life and career. She simply allows God to do the navigation and depends solely on Him to direct her career path- living by her motto, “If I make the way, then I’ll have to pay the way.
