Independence Day Prayer
By Mary Fairchild
Dear Lord,

There is no greater feeling of liberation than to experience this freedom from sin and death that you have provided for me through Jesus Christ. Today my heart and my soul are free to praise you. For this, I am very thankful.
On this Independence Day, I am reminded of all those who have sacrificed for my freedom, following the example of your Son, Jesus Christ. Let me not take my freedom, both physical and spiritual, for granted. May I always remember that a very high price was paid for my freedom. My freedom cost others their very lives.
Lord, today, bless those who have served and continue to give their lives for my freedom. With favor and bounty meet their needs and watch over their families.
Dear Father, I am so thankful for this nation. For all the sacrifices others have made to build and defend this country, I am grateful.
Thank you for the opportunities and freedoms we have in the United States
of America. Help me never to take these blessings for granted.
Help me to live my life in a way that glorifies you, Lord. Give me the strength to be a blessing in someone’s life today, and grant me the opportunity to lead others into the freedom that can be found in knowing Christ.

Amen

Dear Heavenly Father,

With sober heart we come before You this Memorial Day.
We pause for a moment and call to mind all the men and women
who have died in the service of our nation since 1776.

Dear God, please look with mercy on our brave and
selfless brothers and sisters, who did not shirk from
their task but gave themselves completely to the
cause of defending and protecting us all. Bless all
who have given their lives for the sake of liberty,
and grant them eternal rest with you.

We remember also our brave men and women now
serving in our Armed Forces, both at home and
abroad. Dear God, send your angels to protect
them all. Help them discharge their duties
honorably and well. Please bring them safely home
to their families and loved ones. Please bring Your
peace and mercy to our troubled world.

We ask this Father, in the name of Jesus, Your Son.

Amen
