Proverbs 29:4

By justice a king builds up the land, but he who exacts gifts tears it down.

Holy God,

We lift up our leaders again and pray they act justly in every circumstance. Guide their policies and interactions with other leaders so they may rule wisely, and with honesty and integrity. Help them put policies in place that will build up this nation and her people. Give our leaders the vision of what this nation can become if we follow You. Touch our leaders to not put too high of a financial burden on the people, but only what is necessary for the common good.

Amen.

Matthew 12:25

Knowing their thoughts, he said to them, “Every kingdom divided against itself is laid waste, and no city or house divided against itself will stand.”

 Dear Heavenly Father,

We lift up to you our divided nation and pray for healing. Self-interest and thoughts of power permeate many who lead us, and even those in the general population. Help us remember our common interests and work together to solve our problems in a godly way. Help us to embrace and celebrate our similarities as well as our differences. That is where solutions will come from. Remind us daily that we all your precious children and we are better together.

Amen.

Help us to use our freedom to bring you glory. As we celebrate our freedoms today, make us ever mindful that they are a great gift from you.

Amen.
