4th of July Prayers
Lord God Almighty, you have made all the peoples of the earth for your
glory, to serve you in freedom and in peace: Give to the people of our country a zeal for justice and the strength of forbearance, that we may use our liberty in accordance with your gracious will; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one
God, for ever and ever. Amen.
Almighty God, whose wisdom and whose love are over all, accept the prayers we offer
for our nation. Give integrity to its citizens and wisdom to those in authority, that
harmony and justice may be secured in obedience to your will; through Jesus Christ our Lord.
