From the book, Pray for Our Nation from Harrison House publishers, p. 40:
Father, I pray in Jesus’ name that you would restore a social conscience to our nation.
I pray that we would again see the value of teaching our children the virtue of being good citizens — to not only live for the good of the individual but the good of others as well.
Dear Father, I desire to see our nation restored to godly integrity and excellence, so that our children and our citizens can be proud of their nation and proud to be called Americans.
In recognizing our duty to God and our country, keep us mindful to pray for our nation not only in our churches and our homes, but also in the quietness of our daily lives.
“Prayer covers the whole of man’s life. There is no thought, feeling, yearning, or desire however low, trifling, or vulgar we may deem it, which, if it affects our real interest and happiness, we may not lay before God. The whole burden of the whole life of every man may be rolled onto God and not weary him, though it has wearied the man.”
— Henry Ward Beecher
