Happy Fourth of July!
An Independence Day Prayer
You are the Almighty Creator of this great nation, from sea to shining sea.
We are in awe of the many ways you have blessed us. We humbly thank you.
Freedom is from you. How grateful we are for the men and women you have called to lead us and protect us.
Thank you for our Founding Fathers. Thank you for guiding them in the formation of the United States with the Bible, your Word.
Forgive us for walking away from you, for believing we don’t need you.
We pray for soft hearts, discerning minds, and listening ears to hear you.
We pray for our leaders to be walking in your light, hearing to your quiet voice, following your gentle leading.
May your will be done.
Watch over us, guide us, inspire us as your people.
Bless this Independence Day.
In Jesus’ Name we pray.
God bless the U.S.A.!
May your day be filled with joy, gratitude, and love.
Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord…
