Celebrating Freedom

Oh Lord, be with us as we celebrate…

Freedom from want, as we count our many blessings;

Freedom from oppression, as we pray in the open;

Freedom from hunger, as we gather at table;

Freedom from hatred, as we love one another;

Freedom from sorrow, as we recall the joy of resurrection;

Freedom from ignorance, as we encounter You in others;

Freedom from fear, as we look to tomorrow with hope.

 

May your day be filled with family, friends, and faithfulness.

Amen.
