Prayer for Religious Freedom 

Almighty God,
 
We give you thanks for the great blessings you have bestowed upon the people living 
in the United States of America. As Americans we are "one nation, under God, 
indivisible with liberty and justice for all:' We have survived many challenges by those
who would deny our God given dignity and rights as human beings and continue to 
stand as a beacon of hope for the oppressed. 

The first amendment to our Constitution ensures that "Congress shall make no law 
respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof..:' We 
ask you to help us continue to defend our religious freedoms so that all people of faith 
can continue to worship according to their convictions without fear. 

We pray that our flag will continue to wave as the symbol of freedom for all. May you 
open hearts and minds to your will and give courage to those who take action to 
defend our religious freedom. Amen.
