Sunday Prayer | A Prayer for Unity

Our Father in Heaven, Hallowed be Your name.

On this 4th of July, let us focus on what unites us rather than on what divides us. Let us celebrate what we share in common rather than gnawing on what separates us. Help us be unified in doing justice, loving mercy, and walking humbly with You, our Lord and God.

Let us continue to hold steadfast to our Founding Fathers ideal, inspired by You, Almighty God, that all people are created equal and endowed by You with certain unalienable rights, like life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness (Declaration of Independence).

While those men, then, were not perfect men, but flawed as each of us remains today, they listened to Your Spirit, and laid down sacred principles, although they did not completely understand them nor fully put them into practice. They did what they knew to do the best way they knew how to do it.

True Freedom, we know, rests in You. We thank You, Lord, for the ability to make choices and the opportunity to gain wisdom through their consequences. Each of us holds within our grasp the ability, power, and freedom to choose how we react and respond each day. May we continue to grow in our imitation of You, for Your glory and Your delight.

In Jesus’ name.
