Sovereign Lord, as you prevail upon our nation’s leaders’ deliberations today, may the reign of your Spirit’s conviction preside and precipitate due and timely proper awareness of any complicity to rain down upon those among us especially in deep and dire need of repentance, both individually and corporately.
May “We the People of the United States, in Order to [continue to] form a more perfect Union, [re]establish Justice, [re]insure domestic Tranquility, provide [anew] for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity,” over and over, once again this day reaffirm here and now the ordained establishment of “this Constitution for the United States of America.”
Let it be so by your grace, O Holy One, for such a time as this unto the glory of our Creator who has endowed us “with certain unalienable Rights”, among which of “these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
We make such “supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings for everyone” in our country and particularly on this present day at this prescient moment in time for “all who are in high positions, so that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and dignity.” (1 Timothy 2:1-2)
In your holy name and redeeming mercy,
