As we once again celebrate Independence Day I offer you my prayer for our nation under God.
Dear Lord as we reflect upon our great privilege of being Americans we seek your blessing upon our nation that we may truly be a light to the world. Give us the gift of compassion so that we may be aware of suffering and move to alleviate it; grant us the gift of humility to recognize that true greatness is not found in dominance but in service; make us prudent so that we may always act with reason and justice; grant us the gift of civility so that we may treat others with respect and dignity; finally, bless us with wisdom to seek the truth and the courage to embrace it. Amen
