An Independence Day Prayer for Us
“For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.” Galatians 5:1 (CEV)
Today marks the 245th anniversary of our country’s most defining moment – the signing of its Declaration of Independence. While we continue as a nation to strive for the more perfect union envisioned by our Founders, the United States remains the freest, most abundant country the world has ever known. We could think of no better way to honor today than by sharing a prayer for our mutual blessing.
This prayer was originally published on July 4, 2020 in Live Abundantly Now.
Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank You for Your amazing grace and mercy. We come to You and humbly ask that You keep Your hand on this nation.
We are sorry for leaving You out of our decision making so many times. We realize that our country is in danger and we need You desperately to intervene. Let us turn away from all that draws us away from Your love and return to You wholeheartedly. Let us be unified and walk with brotherly love toward one another.
We believe it is Your desire to see this nation thrive and be restored. Let us rise up and be the nation that You always dreamed we would be. Let us show those around us that You are compassionate and abounding in love.
Raise our country into a mighty nation and let us be a bright light in the world. Let us live for You purposefully and passionately. We ask You to protect us from calamity. We trust You to do great and mighty things in this nation.
We ask You to continue blessing America and let us be a blessing to all nations of the earth. We love You and place our hope in You alone.
We pray in Christ’s name. Amen.
May God continuously lead your path.
