Father and Our God,
we praise You for Your goodness
to our nation, giving us blessings
far beyond what we deserve.
Yet we know all is not right
We deeply need a moral and spiritual
renewal to help us meet the many
problems we face.
Help us to turn to You in repentance
and faith. Set our feet on the path
of Your righteousness and peace.
We pray today for those seeking public
office. Give them the wisdom to know what
is right, and the courage to do it.
You have said, "Blessed is the nation
whose God is the Lord."
May this be a new era for America,
as we humble ourselves and acknowledge
You alone as our Savior and Lord.
This we pray in Your holy name, Amen.
