For You To Think About

Heavenly Father,

We give you thanks for the truth you showered on us through our nation’s founders. On July 4, 1776, the Declaration of Independence proclaimed 13 colonies were no longer a part of the British Empire. Today, it is acknowledged worldwide as a powerful statement of human rights.

We praise you for the self-evident truths put forth in that document. We are endowed by you, our Creator, with certain unalienable rights. Those rights include life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

We do not take these rights for granted, but rather acknowledge they come only through your grace. In particular, we know that life comes only from you. It is a right because you have given it to us.

On behalf of a grateful nation, and our unborn who do not yet have a voice, we thank you for the sacrifices made so that we can have the right to life. Allow us to have the boldness to pursue and preserve that right as courageously demonstrated by our nation’s founders.

In Jesus’ name we ask this. Amen

For You to Pray

Gracious Father,
Forgive our nation when we have squandered the right to life. Move our hearts to understand the sacrifices of so many given for us to have this precious, inalienable right.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
