A Prayer For Our Nation

flag

Almighty God,

You have given us this good land as our heritage. Grant that we remember Your generosity and constantly do Your will. Bless our land with honest industry, truthful education, and an honorable way of life.

Save us from violence, discord, and confusion, from pride and arrogance, and from every evil course of action.

Grant that we who came from many nations with many different languages, may become a united people.

Support us in defending our liberties, and give to those to whom we have entrusted the authority of government the spirit of wisdom, that there may be justice and peace in our land.

When times are prosperous, may our hearts be thankful, and in troubled times do not let our trust in You fail; through Jesus Christ, our Lord.

Amen.

(From Lutheran Service Book, Altar Book)
