A Prayer for Our Country
O God, who arrange all things
according to a wonderful design,
graciously receive the prayers
we pour out to you for our country,
that, through the wisdom of its leaders
and the integrity of its citizens,
harmony and justice may be assured
and lasting prosperity come with peace.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
