Prayer On The Fourth

Thank you for freedom.
Thank you for liberty.
Thank you for those who serve.

But I thank you even more that I am not independent.

Thank you for my family.
They keep me from living alone.

Thank you my church community.
They remind me that I do not live for myself.

Thank you for those I work with.
They remind me that it takes partnerships to be successful.

Thank you for those who hold me accountable.
They remind me that I do not always know what it best for myself.

Thank you for those who listen to me.
They remind me that I am not alone.

Thank you for those who encourage me.
They recognize when I am in need.

Thank you for those who laugh with me.
(And more often than not cry with me.)
They remind me that my emotional experience is shared by others.

Thank you for my dependence.

I would not want to live without it.
