Prayer for the Protection of Religious Liberty


Prayer for the Protection of Religious Liberty 

O God our Creator, 

Through the power and working 
of your Holy Spirit,
you call us to live out our faith in
the midst of the world,
bringing the light and the saving
truth of the Gospel
to every corner of society.

We ask you to bless us
in our vigilance for the gift of
religious liberty. 
Give us the strength of mind 
and heart
to readily defend our freedoms
when they are threatened;
give us courage in making our 
voices heard 
on behalf of the rights of your Church 
and the freedom of conscience of all people of faith. 

Grant, we pray, O heavenly Father, 
a clear and united voice to all your sons and daughters
gathered in your Church 
in this decisive hour in the history of our nation, 
so that, with every trial withstood 
and every danger overcome— 
for the sake of our children, our grandchildren, 
and all who come after us— 
this great land will always be "one nation, under God, 
indivisible, with liberty and justice for all." 

We ask this through Christ our Lord. 

Amen.
