Dear Heavenly Father,
Today, on the Fourth of July, we remember those who died to give each and every American their freedom. Lord, we pray that while many of us are celebrating today, we remember why we get to celebrate. We ask that every person throughout this nation, be reminded of the struggles and sacrifice that those who came before us endured to give us our freedom. Thank you Lord, for allowing us to live in a country where we have the freedom to love and worship you openly. We thank you and praise you for this day and everyday!
In Christ Jesus always, Amen.
Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.John 15:13 NIV
