From the book Pray for Our Nation, published by Harrison House, p. 14:
Dear Father, in the name of the Lord Jesus, I pray for our economy. I know that even more than a strong military, a strong economy helps keep a nation powerful.
Father, I pray that You would raise up people of skill and wisdom who would affect the economy of our nation. Give them inspired ideas and a voice with the powers that be.
Cause Congress to vote aright in these matters. Give them foresight so that provision might be made for our nation’s future, not just its present.
Father, as the people of our nation continue to finance the preaching of the Gospel and help the poor all over the world, I pray that You would continue to prosper us more and more.
While we give praise to God, the supreme disposer of all events, for His interposition on our behalf, let us guard against the dangerous error of trusting in, or boasting of, an arm of flesh…
If your case is just, if your principles are pure, and your conduct is prudent, you need not fear the multitude of opposing hosts.
— John Witherspoon, A Signer of the Declaration of Independence
