All American Prayers For The 4th of July

Posted: Updated:

Americans are prayerful people. We pray in times of trial, and also in times of joy and thanksgiving. We pray privately before bed, as a family at the dinner table and as a nation at the inauguration of presidents.

Prayer happened on this soil before there was an America by Native Peoples, and prayer continues today as new cultures and tradition from around the world arrive daily to enrich the spiritual tapestry of the United States.

One of the great testimonies of American culture is the breadth and depth of our tradition of prayer. In this collection of prayers inspired by James P. Moore's: The Treasury Of American Prayers you will find prayers from Christopher Columbus, to King, To Dylan.

Happy, and prayerful, 4th of July.
