AskPatty_is_#Grateful-03-Freedom

On this day following the Presidential elections, AskPatty shares the following quotes to help all Americans remember that we live in the land of the free and the home of the brave.

"We pray for all who hold positions of leadership and responsibility in our national life. Let your blessing rest upon them, and make them responsive to your will, so that our nation may be to all the world an example of justice and compassion.

"Deepen our love for our country and our desire to serve it. Strengthen our power of self-sacrifice for our nation’s welfare. Teach us to uphold its good name by our right conduct.

"Cause us to see clearly that the well being of our nation is in the hands of all its citizens; imbue us with zeal for the cause of liberty in our own land and in all lands; help us always to keep our homes safe from affliction, strife, and war.

“Amen."
~ The New Union Prayerbook for the Days of Awe

Greenlight A Vet  is a campaign to establish visible national support for veterans by changing one light in or around our homes to green, the color of hope, renewal, and well-being.
