Prayer for America

Almighty God,

bless the American nation

and make it true

to the ideas of freedom and justice

and brotherhood for all who make it great.

Guard them & all of mankind from war,

from fire and wind,

from compromise, fear, confusion.

Be close to their president and their statesmen;

give them vision and courage,

as they ponder decisions affecting peace

and the future of the world.

Make them more deeply aware of their heritage;

realizing not only their rights

but also their duties

and responsibilities as a citizen.

Make that great land

and all its people

know clearly Your will,

that they may fulfill

the destiny ordained for them and us in the salvation of the nations,

and the restoring of all things in Christ.
