Independence Day Prayer

Loving and gracious God who knows us and calls to us, seeking us in the midst of our daily lives, we lift up to you our thanks and praises. We are grateful to live in a country where we can celebrate independence, where we are free to voice our opinions, associate with whom we choose, and worship wherever we desire. We thank you for having blessed our country and are grateful that we are not the only country to receive your blessings for we know that your children live in all the countries on the earth. We pray that all your children in all the faith traditions choose to live a life of love, justice, mercy, and forgiveness for that is how we reflect your image. As we celebrate our liberties this day, may we remember to put you first in our lives – GOD and country rather than COUNTRY and God – for it is in you that we will find true happiness. Amen.
