That our nation may remember you as the God of mercy and truth;

that the fulfillment of your will may be our desire;

that we may be healed from the motives of greed and revenge;

that we may discover through you a deeper experience of prayer;

that we may offer unselfish devotion to the well-being of our nation;

that you would uphold and guide our president and all in authority;

that you would defend and preserve our soldiers, sailors, and air force;

and that all our people may seek courage and a spirit of endurance:

we ask this, O Lord.

To hasten the day of peace; to cast away the threads of hate; to forgive our enemies;

to scatter any who delight in war; and to renew steadfast faith within us:

hear us, good Lord, and receive our prayer.

O Christ, spare us.

O Christ, heal us.
