Live as One

Columban Daily Prayer
July 4, 2024

God our Father,
Your Son Jesus spoke to us a message of peace
and taught us to live as brothers and sisters.

His message took form in the vision
of our Founding Fathers, as they fashioned a nation
where all people might live as one.

This message lives on in our midst
as a task for us today and a promise for tomorrow.

We thank You, Father, for Your blessings in the past,
and for all that, with Your help, we must yet achieve.

Bless our nation and bless each of us.
We thank You for our independence.
Hasten the day when we put aside our greed
and differences to become a nation
with liberty and justice, not just for some, but for all,
through Christ our Lord.
