Prayer for our Nation … 9-Jul-2018
From the Desk of Father David
Dear Friends in Christ,
With all that is happening in our nation, I am asking you to spend time in prayer for our national and local governments and for every citizen. Some people look to the government to solve our problems. It is only when the government and it’s citizens work together that lasting change can take place and our nation will become healthier and stronger. The Scriptures constantly call everyone to use their talents to build a better world. When we do this God blesses and multiplies our efforts and marvelous things begin to happen.
Here is a prayer for you to use:
Prayer for our Nation
God our Father, giver of life, we entrust the United States of America to your loving care. You are the rock on which this nation was founded. You alone are the true source of our cherished rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Reclaim this land for your glory and dwell among your people.
Send your Spirit to touch the hearts of our nation’s leaders. Open their minds to the great worth of human life and the responsibilities that accompany human freedom. Remind your people that true happiness is rooted in seeking and doing your will.
Through the intercession of Mary Immaculate, patroness of our land, grant us the courage to reject the “culture of death.” Lead us into a new millennium of life. We ask this through Christ Our Lord. Amen.
The Fourteen Holy Helpers Staff along with myself hope that each of you a wonderful Fourth of July celebration. May the Holy Trinity bless the United States and call each of us to use our talents to build a better world, thereby glorifying God by our love of neighbor.
