The Gift of Freedom


Loving Father, Among the treasured blessings You have given to humankind Is the gift of freedom To seek You with heart, soul, and mind.

May we faithfully choose to do What is pleasing in Your sight, And know the peace of heart that comes From doing what is right.

May we never take for granted Life enjoyed in liberty; We pray for people now afraid To praise You openly.

May our pursuit of happiness Go hand in hand with being Memobers of the Body of Christ, In whom we find our meaning.

We remember in our prayers The souls whose lives made evident Sacred truths bravely upheld While trusting in Your providence.
