A Prayer for Independence Day

July 4, 2017

Chalice Press shares a poem for Independence Day written by Sandhya Rani Jha.

“God, even as we celebrate the blessings of this nation, help us be humble enough to know that you really are the God of all nations, and that you do not honor human-made boundaries but honor the divinity and dignity of each person whom you made in your own image. May we remember that as we live as Americans in this complex global landscape. ”
