[SPEAKER CHANGES] Just here on Friday I would like to read the 4th, July prayer from the US Senate in 1969. We thank You, O God, that the freedom we celebrate in coming days is not an attainment, but an obtainment, that it is Your precious gift to humanity as part of our createdness. We thank you for the daring of our forefathers in reclaiming their "ancient rights." We thank you, too, for the heroes' valor, the patriots' devotion, the prophets' vision, and for all the blood and sweat and toil by which our freedom was purchased. As we commemorate our national independence accept again the declaration of our everlasting dependence upon me. In all our joy and thanksgiving enable us to remain a nation "under God," and give us grace and goodness to minister to humankind in his name. Amen. I pledge Allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with Liberty and Justice for all.
