"A Prayer For Our New Republic"
Giver of life, we entrust this New Republic to Your loving care.
You are the rock on which this sovereignty was founded.
You alone are the true source of our cherished rights to life, liberty, equality and the pursuit of happiness.
Reclaim this land for ALL Your glory and dwell among ALL Your people.
Send Your Spirit to touch ALL of the hearts of our national and global leaders.
Open ALL of their minds to the great worth of ALL human life and the responsibilities that accompanies ALL human freedoms.
Remind ALL Your people that true happiness and humanitarianism is rooted in seeking and doing Your will.
Grant us the courage to go forward and reject the existing "culture of death and destruction."
Lead us into a new millennium of life everlasting hope.
Again, we ask this through our love, respect and ultimate faith in our divine Creator.
