A Prayer for Our Country
“Almighty God, bless our nation and keep it true to the ideals of freedom and justice and brotherhood for all that make our nation great. Guard us from war, from compromise, fear, and confusion. Be close to our president and our statesmen; give them vision and courage, as they ponder decisions affecting peace and the future of the world. Make me more deeply aware of my heritage; aware not only of my rights but also of my duties and responsibilities as a citizen. Make this great land and all its people know clearly Your will, that they may fulfill the destiny assigned to us for the salvation of the nations, and the restoring of all things in Christ. Amen.
Jesus, Mary, Joseph, I give you my heart and my soul. Jesus, Mary, Joseph, assist me in my last agony. Jesus, Mary, Joseph, may I sleep and rest in peace with you.” [Roman Ritual]
