Prayer for July 4, 2022

Today, O God we celebrate the anniversary of our country. May we take the time this day to read the Declaration of Independence. Let us look to what in it may be calling us to reevaluate who and what we are as a country and aspire once again to be better. Help us to become less divided and to desire the messy work that it takes to be a country that truly represents us. May we desire to be a people that desire to create a place where love for one another overrules peoples natural desire to have their own selfish way. May we take the time to listen more fully and try once again to be better and more caring. Help us to become better each and every day. May we work to find the best that we have to offer and remove those from power who desire only their will and power. Give us the will care for one another this and everyday. Amen
