Almighty God, you have given us this good land as our heritage. Make
us always remember your generosity and constantly do your will. Bless
our land with honest industry, truthful education, and an honorable way
of life. Save us from violence, discord and confusion; from pride and
and arrogance, and from every evil course of action. Make us who came
from many nations with many different languages a united people.
Defend our liberties and give those whom we have entrusted with the
authority of government the spirit of wisdom, that there might be
justice and peace in our land. When times are prosperous, let our
hearts be thankful; and, in troubled times, do not let our trust in you
fail. We ask all this through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Happy 4th of July!!!
