The National Day of Prayer started 70 years ago as a way for all denominations to stop and pray for the country. The day is celebrated by praying for the seven centers of influence in the U.S.: government, military, media, business, education, church and family.
This year’s theme is “Lord, pour out your love, life, and liberty.”
Liberty means the condition in which an individual has the ability to act following his or her own will and alternatively, achieve their potential, within the context of other words like political freedom. … They argue that liberty without equality means the domination of the most powerful.
Today’s Prayer :
O God our Creator, from your provident hand we have received our right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. You have called us as your people and given us the right and the duty to worship you, the only true God, and your Son, Jesus Christ. … We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
