Fortnight for Freedom Prayer of the Day
For Our Nation
Gracious and loving God,
we come to You in humble prayer
for the United States of America.
Bless our President.
Give him wisdom and strength
to serve the American people
and lead our country in ways
that are pleasing to You.
Bless our Congress.
Instill in them knowledge
and understanding to enact laws
that protect the sanctity of life –
from the unborn to the elderly;
and promote the good of all people.
Bless the people of the United States.
Make us aware of our responsibility
as citizens to uphold the principles
of life, liberty, justice and equality.
Send Your Holy Spirit
upon our beloved country.
Make us people of faith
in time of uncertainty.
Make us people of hope
in times of trouble.
Make us people of compassion
with those who are less fortunate.
Make us people of peace
in our homes, our communities,
our country, and our world.
We ask this through Jesus Christ,
Our Lord and Savior.
