Happy Independence Day to all Liberian worldwide.
As we celebrate 173 years of existence as a free state, we at LIBGeez prayer is:
God, source of all freedom, this day is bright with the memory of those that declared that life and liberty are your gift to every human being. Help us to continue a good work begun long ago. Make our vision clear and our will strong; that only in human solidarity will we find liberty, and justice only in the honor that belongs to every life on earth. Turn our hearts towards the family of nations: to understand the ways of others, to offer friendship, and to find safety in the common good for all. We pray for Devine understanding and opening of the minds of our leaders so they can come to know you for themselves. Because the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. Lead is gracefully through your path to greatness. And grant us eternal peace and love for all.
