I found this book, "God Bless America: Prayers and Reflections For Our Country" today and wanted to share this prayer.

From page 12

A Prayer for our country

Almighty God, you have given us this great land as our heritage.  We humbly pray that we may always remember your generosity and faithfully do your will.  Bless our land with honest industry, trusthful education and an honorable way of life.  Defend our liberties and strengthen the resolve of the people who have come from throughout the world to make America their home.  Lead us to choose the harder right instead of the easier wrong.  Help us to appreciate the opportunities that are ours as we struggle to bring harmony to an unsettled world.  May we balance our concern for justice with a willingness to display mercy, and may our concern for security be tempered with a willingness to take risks which will produce worthwhile change for the good of all people.  O Lord, we pray for your guidance as we work together for the best interest for our communities, our nation, our world, and the ultimate goal of peace.  When times are prosperous, let our hearts be thankful and in troubled times may our deepest trust be in you.  Amen


Please keep our country in your prayers, so many military families and many of those employed by the govt. are at risks of not being paid and they need their incomes!  May the Lord provide for all of them if this shutdown happens and lead our govt. officials to come to an agreement as quickly as possible, in Jesus' name, amen.
