Daily Prayer for July 4th, 2018

HaPpy Independence Day, God—thank You! 🙂

Of course, I pay tribute to this US federal holiday for the adoption of the Declaration of independence, but I give all the glory to You!! Thank You for setting me free from bondage. Holy Spirit, help me to respect everyone, love the brotherhood, fear You, God, and honor the emperor. In Jesus name. Amen.

1 Peter 2:13-17 English Standard Version (ESV)

Submission to Authority

13 Be subject for the Lord’s sake to every human institution, whether it be to the emperor as supreme, 14 or to governors as sent by him to punish those who do evil and to praise those who do good. 15 For this is the will of God, that by doing good you should put to silence the ignorance of foolish people. 16 Live as people who are free, not using your freedom as a cover-up for evil, but living as servants of God.17 Honor everyone. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the emperor.

Romans 8:21 English Standard Version (ESV)

21 that the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to corruption and obtain the freedom of the glory of the children of God.

Galatians 5:13 English Standard Version (ESV)

13 For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another.
