Dear Father, guardian of the free,
May we never use freedom as a pretext for evil or as an excuse for indulging sinful desires.
Rather, grant that we, out of love, will make ourselves servants to one another. For the Lord has taught us that the whole law is fulfilled in the one saying, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” Keep us from “biting” and “devouring” one another, lest we be consumed by one another. Encourage and enable me and all my brothers and sisters in Christ to live by love, your principle of freedom.
In the name of Jesus I ask you to preserve my faith in freedom and love. Amen.
