Emphasis There is Liberty in Your word
Father, we cry aloud for liberty in our country. We think we have liberty in our churches. We look for liberty in our relationships, but Lord, the only true liberty is in Your precepts (Psalm 119:45). Lord we are like the prophets and teachers of old who would dress needs, wounds, mortal wounds, as if they were not serious, saying “Peace, peace!” when there is no peace (Jeremiah 6:14). Father, forgive us for thinking that liberty comes from hearing what our itching ears want to hear (2 Timothy 4:3). We know this only leads to guides, to teachers who mislead us (Isaiah 9:16) and blind guides that lead us into pits, Oh Father, give us liberty by giving us the grace to turn from them, these blind guides (Matthew 15:14).
