We thank you for our freedom that we celebrate today.We thank you for our forefathers and foremothers
who worked to set us free.
We pray for those who are not yet free
that they too may one day be at liberty.
We pray for those who have fought to obtain their freedom.
But let us not forget that we have an even greater freedom,that comes to us through your son Jesus.
Let us not turn to our selfish desires.
But rather let us live in the spirit, walk in the spirit
with lives that show the fruit of the spirit.
May we treat each other with the love, patience, g
goodness, gentleness, and kindness that comes from you.
May we be faithful to you.
May we master self -control.
May the spirit lead us in our days.Lord sometimes our days are like whirlwinds full of activities,
meetings, and business.
We don’t know whether we are coming or going,
And we need a double portion of Elijah’s and Elisha’s spirit to make it.
Slow us down, focus us, make us to rest in you.
May we find our peace and joy in you.
Thank you again for our freedom. Amen.
