A Prayer for Responsible Citizenship

Lord, keep this nation under Your care.  Bless the leaders of our land that we may be a people at peace among ourselves and a blessing to other nations of the earth.  Grant that we may choose trustworthy leaders, contribute to wise decisions for the for the general welfare, and serve You faithfully in our generation; through Jesus Christ, our Lord.

For responsible Leaders:

O merciful Father in heaven, graciously regard those who make, administer, and judge the laws of this nation and look in mercy upon our leaders.  Enlighten them and grant them wisdom and understanding that under their peaceable governance Your people may be guarded and directed in rightness, quietness, and unity.  Protect their lives that we with them may show forth the praise of your name, through Jesus Christ, our Lord.
