July 4, 2020
Like all the times I wrote before,
I come to You to write once more.
Our nation Lord, land of the free,
Has fewer now who bend a knee,
Who lift a prayer, who read your Word.
We seek your help. I pray we’re heard.
I pray that as we celebrate
We pause to thank you for this date,
Remember those who suffered pain.
I pray their work won’t be in vain.
I pray the freedoms we preserve
Are not for greed but used to serve.
Help us see other’s needs come first,
Bring out our best and not our worst.
I pray we heal, and end our fights,
Restore our hope, reset our sights.
