Prayer for Religious Freedom

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.

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.

A Father’s Day Prayer

God our Father, you govern and protect your people and shepherd them with a father’s love. You placed a father in a family as a sign of your love, care, and constant protection.

Give your wisdom to fathers that they may encourage and guide their children.

Guide every father with the Spirit of your love that they may grow in holiness and draw their family ever closer to you. Amen.
