Prayer for the Nation

WN Pope - Celtic Motif

O Father,
We pray that you will grant to the people of this nation the will to do good,
To flee from evil, and
To practice all righteousness,
asking us to be respectful of life and sharers of your blessings,
Caring for one another in mercy and truth.
And we pray that you will banish all evil from our hearts and wickedness from our laws,
enabling us to be servants of your holy will and performers of your love.
Through Christ our Lord,
Amen!
