What am I doing when I pray for someone?  I know what I am not doing!  I’m not twisting God’s arm and not asking Him to do something he doesn’t want to do.  He loves those people a whole lot more.   When you pray for someone you are bringing that person into the presence of God. That is in your heart and that is a real presence they would not have had otherwise.  Father Ross

Prayer For Our Country

(1928 Book of Common Prayer pg. 36)


Almighty God, who hast given us this good land for our heritage; We humbly beseech thee that we may always prove ourselves a people mindful of thy favour and glad to do thy will.  Bless our land with honourable industry, sound learning, and pure manners.  Save us from violence, discord, and confusion; from pride and arrogancy, and from every evil way.  Defend our liberties, and fashion into one united people the multitudes brought hither out of many kindreds and tongues.  Endue with the spirit of wisdom those to whom in thy name we entrust the authority of government, that there may be justice and peace at home, and that through obedience to thy law, we may show forth thy praise among the nations of the earth.  In the time of prosperity, fill your hearts with thankfulness, and in the day of trouble, suffer not our trust in thee to fail; all which we ask through Jesus Christ our Lord.
