Young woman sitting on the grass and praying in the park.

For This, We Pray

Most Gracious Lord, we thank you for the blessings you bestow
upon your humble creatures now gathered here below.
We are comforted in unity by those you send our way
to help us find the answers to the troubles of our day.

Old Glory yet is flying high above the trees
and if we are to keep her there, we must get on our knees.
In the face of daily tyranny, Old Glory's tattered and she's torn,
but if you take the lead, dear Lord, we know she'll be reborn.

Come now, Lord and guide us in this fight for liberty
and for the rights You granted to all humanity.
We humbly ask forgiveness for the times we've gone astray
and pray your Holy Spirit will come and light our way.

Turn hearts of stone that threaten our divine right to be free
and awaken all your faithful to be what we must be.
All of this we ask You in the name of your dear Son
whose sacrifice assures us the true victory's already been won.

Jesus then said .... If you remain in my word, you will truly be my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.
