Prayer Offered for July 3, 2023

Gracious God, source of all freedom, this day is bright with the memory of those who declared that life and liberty are Your gift to every human.

Help us to continue the good work begun long ago.

Make our vision clear and our will strong to ensure the freedom of all.

Help us realize that only in human solidarity will we find true liberty, and justice only in the honor that belongs to every life on Earth.

Turn our hearts toward the family of nations:

To understand the ways of others, to offer hospitality and friendship,

And to find safety only in the common good of all.

We ask this in Your name.—AMEN.
