Prayer for the Protection of Religious Liberty

O God Our Creator,

from you 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 to worship true God, and your Son, Jesus Christ. 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
