Prayer for our Nation

I lift up this prayer to the God of gods, the Lord of lords, the King of kings and the sovereign
ruler of all nations. We are here together on this Loyalty Day morning to affirm our loyalty to
the United States of America. As good citizens we affirm that we hold our citizenship as a
sacred trust between one another and with you; for you alone are the giver of life and liberty; and
no pursuit of happiness will ever find success apart from an abiding faith and trust in your mercy,
grace and love.

For your glory I ask that those who lead us in the courts of government might be blessed with
wisdom, humility and courage to do on our behalf what is right in your eyes. You alone are the
judge of history and you alone know what is good and true and right. Forgive us as individual
citizens and as a nation for our frequent failure to do justice, to love mercy and to walk humbly
at your side.‖ By the power of your Holy Spirit we ask that you would work in and through us
―to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the
common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves
and our posterity.‖

Above all, we want to thank and praise you for the gifts of liberty and life that our nation was
founded to protect, preserve and defend. And even as we reaffirm our loyalty to our nation we
also pledge our lives and our sacred honor as tokens of our loyalty to you and your kingdom.
