Happy Independence Day

Partners' Network Blog

The following prayer is said every Saturday in my Synagogue and I think it is appropriate for Independence Day.

“Our God and God of our ancestors: We ask for Your blessings for our country – for its government, for its leaders and advisors, and for all who exercise just and rightful authority.  Teach them insights from Your Torah, that they may administer all affairs of state fairly, that peace and security, happiness and prosperity, justice and freedom may forever abide in our midst.

Creator of all flesh, bless all the inhabitants of our country with Your spirit.  May citizens of all races and creeds forge a common bond in true harmony, to banish hatred and bigotry, and to safeguard the ideals and free institutions that are the pride and glory of our country.

May this land, under Your providence, be an influence for good throughout the world, uniting all people in peace and freedom – helping them to fulfill the vision of Your prophet: “Nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they experience war any more.” And let us say: Amen.”

This has been copied from Siddur Sim Shalom ©1998 by The Rabbinical Assembly.

Have a Happy and Joyous Independence Day. And Fly the Flag!
