Pray For Our Country

On this 4th of July as we think about our country’s past struggles, current condition, and future, we invite you to review and add your prayers to the following verses, most of which are adapted from the “Prayer For Our Nation” in the Lutheran Book of Worship:

Bless our land and people with honest industry, and an honorable way of life.

Save us from violence, discord, and confusion; from pride and arrogance, and from every evil course of action.

Make us who come from many nations, with many different languages and cultures, a united people.

Let us provide a truthful education, and informed public discourse.

Give those whom we have entrusted with the authority of government the spirit of wisdom, that there might be justice and peace in our land.

Help us to understand and value our interdependence as much as our freedoms, and help us forgive and care for one another.

We need your help O Lord, and seek your guidance.

Amen
