Prayer for Independence Day
Celebrating Our Freedom
you have given us the gifts of life and liberty
and entrust to your people the duty to guard these gifts
wherever they are threatened.
Help us to protect the freedom of all
to follow the Gospel of your Son, Jesus Christ,
and to bring his light and truth to the ends of the earth.
Guide all who play a role in enacting legislation
to uphold the freedom of conscience of all citizens.
Send us your Spirit to inspire in us
the wisdom and courage needed
to witness to the truth and to stand up for all
whose religious liberty is endangered.
We ask this through Christ, our Lord.
Mary Immaculate, Patroness of our country, pray for us.
