Prayer for All Nations

O Lord our Governor, whose glory is in all the world:

We commend all nations to your merciful care, that, being guided by your divine direction, all may dwell secure in your peace. Grant to the new President of the United States, and to all world leaders, and to all in authority the wisdom and strength to know and to do your will. Fill them with the love of truth and righteousness, and make them ever mindful of their calling to serve, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
