When in the course of human events it becomes necessary to dissolve our dependence on self, we acknowledge that we depend on God almighty.
He and He alone is our Creator, Lord, and Master. These truths are self-evident, and yet many reject the truth. As for me and my house, we don’t just accept it; we embrace it. We proclaim it.
May the Lord God be with us, guide us, protect us, and deliver us from evil. May He give us the physical and spiritual food we need this day. May He protect our hearts and minds and deliver us from temptation. May He forgive us where we fail Him and where we fail each other.
I bow before you Father, and ask your mercy on me, my family, my country, and the world you lovingly created. I pray for the hearts of all men to be turned to You and that Your peace and love will rule our lives. I reaffirm this day my total dependence on You. Amen.
