Length of Days - Search for Freedom

4th of July 2008

I have chosen to write this week’s prayer for our On-line Prayer Group today, to celebrate the 4th of July. Our ancestors sacrificed so much so that we could live in a land that is free. Young men and women, who could be home with family and career, continue to make the same sacrifice so that we and others can live in a democratic society. Let us pray for them and their families:

“Oh Loving Father, God, we worship you and praise your name. We come before you on this day that we celebrate liberty, and ask you to watch over those who continue to sacrifice for our freedoms. Send your angels to build a shield of protection around each one, to protect them from harm, and doubt, and fear. Give them courage, insight, and strength to do the task put before them, that all men and women may be free. We pray also for their families and loved-ones. Let them realize the mighty job their family member is called to do. Whisper calm and peace in their ears, like a gentle breeze blowing off the sea and carry them all to a time of peace. In the name of Jesus, our Savior, we pray. Amen”
