A Prayer For Our Country from 1928

The following is a prayer for our country from the 1928 Book of Common Prayer. What was considered "common" back then, today, it is not allowed to pray in the name of Jesus Christ publically in most places. This can only be achieved through and by athiest's threats and intimidation from the enemy within who want to destroy this once great nation born and created on the moral and biblical principles of the teachings of Jesus Christ. Today, we must be willing and ready to take our stand for Jesus Christ no matter where we are, and gracefully and fearlessly pray in His name when the Spirit prompts us to do so without hesitation as we obey Him and work to advance His kingdom.
A Prayer for Our Country by Marcia Segelstein

Almightly 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 our 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 our hearts with thankfulnesss, and in the day of trouble, suffer not our trust in thee to fail; all which we ask through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
