Lord Jesus, King of kings and Lord of lords.
We come now praising your mighty power and endless authority. Your kingdom lasts forever and your dominion has no bounds.
We lift up to you our nation’s leaders who have a God-given duty to exact justice, defend the rights of the poor and needy, and give the land the rest that it so desperately needs. Almighty God, strengthen them with integrity and character to act righteously and not out of selfish ambition. Protect them from all evil powers that maneuver to coerce them. Grant them abundant wisdom so that they may know your ways – to labor for the good of Creation and all of us who daily depend on it for life and health.
For the glory of your name and the coming of your kingdom. Amen.
