Independence Day, July 4
"God our Father, your Son Jesus spoke to us a message of peace and taught us to live as brothers and sisters.
His message took form in the vision of our
Founding Fathers, as they fashioned a nation where all people might live as one.
Bless our nation and bless each of us. As we thank you for our independence, may we extend its blessings to our youngest brothers and sisters, the children in the womb.
Hasten the day when our nation will be a
nation with liberty and justice, not just for
some, but for all, through Christ our Lord. Amen."
