Prayer for the Protection of Religious Liberty
Although monetary donations are greatly appreciated and needed, the Freedom of Conscience Defense Fund understands that prayers can be even more powerful. As such, we ask that you offer the following prayer in support of the work of FCDF attorneys, and religious liberty attorneys everywhere.*
O God our Creator, from your provident hand we have received our right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. You have called us as your people and given us the right and the duty to worship you, the only true God, and your Son, Jesus Christ.Through the power and working of your Holy Spirit, you call us to live out our faith in the midst of the world, bringing the light and the saving truth of the Gospel to every corner of society.
We ask you to bless the attorneys of the Freedom of Conscience Defense Fund in their vigilance for the gift of religious liberty. Give them the strength of mind and heart to readily defend our freedoms when they are threatened; give them courage in making their voices heard on behalf of the rights of your Church and the freedom of conscience of all people of faith.
Grant, we pray, O heavenly Father, a clear and united voice to all your sons and daughters gathered in your Church in this decisive hour in the history of our nation, so that, with every trial withstood and every danger overcome—for the sake of our children, our grandchildren, and all who come after us—this great land will always be “one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
