A prayer of perspective

If we complain of any lack in our Christian liberties here in America because of some action by a judge or some governmental agency, let us remind ourselves that we as Christians, because of who we are in Christ, have a liberty that can never be taken away by anyone else, no matter what threatenings may be brought our way.
We must remember that the starving prisoner who will die in only hours in a pitch black cell possesses more liberty and is a freer man than the middle class Christian who complains bitterly over some perceived injustice, however slight, done against him.
Let us pray for a greater freedom that no external circumstance can affect. And if need be, let us pray that God would mercifully strip us of all that hinders our perceiving Him.
