    by Joshua J. Masters

    Father God,
    I pray for our continued independence and sovereignty as we look toward You. For the gifts described in our Declaration of Independence that speak of, “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness,” are granted by You alone.

    You have provided freedom to our land and you are worthy of praise. You placed in the hearts of our forefathers a desire to seek independence and freedom.

    May we be secure in our freedom,
    but never take it for granted.

    May we be free from slavery,
    but be a servant to Your will.

    May we be protected from oppression
    as we extend the provision of liberty to others.

    And may we speak with honor as we honor your Word.

    May we, as Christian Patriots, heed the words of Paul, who wrote:

    You, my brothers, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature; rather, serve one another in love. (Galatians 5:13)

    Give us the ability to be grateful. Give us a heart for Your Word and Your Justice.

    Reveal the freedom of Your Kingdom, knowing that is the only place where true freedom resides.

    Bless those who serve our nation and have protected her shores.
    Bring protection, honor, and blessings to their households.

    May we be a people whose freedom is a beacon of Your grace to the world,
    and may we be forever reminded of Your hand in our deliverance.

    Independence Day ought to be commemorated, as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty” -John Adams
