God Mend Thine Every Flaw

“America, America! God mend thine every flaw.  Confirm thy soul in self control, thy liberty in law.”  From the Hymn “America The Beautiful”, verse 3.

O Lord, mend our every flaw, especially those fed by hate, fear, and greed.

Give us the courage and the discipline to learn even from those with whom we disagree, to acknowledge and study the complexities of the issues before us, and to be civil and kind in our speech.

Help us pursue and implement laws that are grounded in justice and support our common life, acknowledging our responsibility and care for one another.

Let us use our liberties wisely, and be thankful for what we have.

Give us the strength to persevere so that we might truly become, “one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”

Amen.
