Prayer for Independence Day

The California State Senate joined me in this prayer this morning, and I share it with you:

O God, as we approach the celebration our nation’s independence, we give thanks for our freedom and for those who dedicate their lives to the protection of our freedom.  Help us to remember that not all people of this earth enjoy freedom of expression, freedom from want, freedom from pain or freedom from persecution. So guide our minds, so open our hearts and so fill our spirit that we may work with courage and vision on their behalf, and so make us worthy of the freedom we enjoy. Amen.
