Reflection 7.4.16

A Prayer For Our Nation from the PC(USA) Book of Common Worship


Almighty God,

you have given us this good land as our heritage.

Make us always remember your generosity

and constantly do your will.

Bless our land with honest industry,

sound learning,

and an honorable way of life.

Save us from violence, discord, and confusion;

from pride and arrogance,

and from every evil way.

Make us who come from many nations

with many different languages

a united people.

Defend our liberties

and give those whom we have entrusted with the authority of government

the spirit of wisdom,

that there might be justice and peace in our land.

When times are prosperous, let our hearts be thankful;

and, in troubled times, do not let our trust in you fail.

We ask all this through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
