“It is for freedom that Christ set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened by a yoke of slavery.”
Galatians 5:1 (NLT)

Dearest Father God, Thank You so much for the freedoms we enjoy here in this country.We thank You that through Your Son, Jesus Christ, we are set free from the bonds and burdens of the world. Let us be mindful that we are not the only ones who desire freedom. We pray for those brave men and women around the world who strive for freedom in their own countries to worship You. Give strength to their work and honor to their sacrifice. We are blessed beyond measure to live in the most free country in the world. We thank You also for our brave soldiers are keeping that freedom safe. Let us honor their sacrifice by living a life worthy of the blessings that You have given us. Let us turn to you for all things. In the name of Christ we pray, Amen.
