Editor's note:

As the Ren­o­varé Team pre­pares to go dark” for a week in cel­e­bra­tion of such hol­i­days as Cana­da Day and Inde­pen­dence Day, we leave you with a short prayer from the Book of Com­mon Prayer. Whether your nation is mark­ing a birth­day this com­ing week or not, may we all serve the Lord in free­dom and peace.

—Renovaré Team

Lord God Almighty, you have made all the peo­ples of the earth for your glo­ry, to serve you in free­dom and in peace: Give to the peo­ple of our coun­try a zeal for jus­tice and the strength of for­bear­ance, that we may use our lib­er­ty in accor­dance with your gra­cious will; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spir­it, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
