AN INDEPENDENCE DAY PRAYER
“Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord.” Psalm 33:12
Lord, on this day, as we remember our nation’s independence, we pause to honor you. We thank you for the blessings of liberty. We know that our country and its many freedoms have come from your hand. Our land is in need of you. Our people are in need if you. Lead us as a nation in the way we should go and grant us the opportunity to lead others into the freedom that can be found in knowing you. Today our hearts and souls are free to praise you, and for that we are thankful. Amen.
