Today's Daily Devotion

Enjoy this one-minute devotion and be inspired


Celebrate Freedom

Fourth of July Fireworks

I have chosen the way of faithfulness; I have set my heart on Your laws. I hold fast to Your statutes, Lord; do not let me be put to shame. I run in the path of Your commands, for You have broadened my understanding.—Psalm 119:30-32 (NIV)

Today, as we celebrate Independence Day, reflect on the many blessings God has showered upon us as a nation. Give thanks for those who have sacrificed in the past and serve in the present to protect freedom, and pray for peace among nations and all people.

Today's Prayer:

Lord, make us worthy of Your gift of freedom.

Adapted from 60 Days of Prayer, a new publication from Guideposts

A daily devotional offers a chance to take a break from the busy world and connect with God. Let your daily devotions lead your spiritual life forward.
