Prayer for Religious Liberty

We haven't offered a prayer of the week in awhile, but I think that it is important to pray this prayer during the Fortnight of Freedom.

Prayer for Religious Liberty

Almighty God, Father of all nations,
for freedom you have set us free in Christ Jesus (Gal 5:1). 
We praise and bless you for the gift of religious liberty,  
the foundation of human rights, justice and the common good. 
Grant to our leaders the wisdom to protect  
and promote our liberties. 
By your grace may we have the courage to defend them,  
for ourselves and for all those who live in this blessed land. 
We ask this  
through the intercession of Mary Immaculate, our patroness,  
and in the name of your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ,  
in the unity of the Holy Spirit, with whom you live and reign,  
one God, for ever and ever.  

St. Thomas More, pray for us
St. John Fisher, pray for us
St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross, pray for us
Bl. Miguel Pro, pray for us
