A Prayer for Our Country at the Republican National Convention

Let us pray:

Almighty God, father of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and Jesus, we beg your continued blessings on this sanctuary of freedom, and on all of those who proudly call it home. We ask your benediction on those yet to be born, and on those who are about to see you at the end of this life. Bless those families whose ancestors arrived on these shores generations ago, as well as those families that have come recently, to build a better future while weaving their lives into the rich tapestry of America.

God of wisdom, justice, and might, we ask your guidance for those who govern us, and on those who would govern us:  the president, vice-president, the Congress, the Supreme Court, and all those who seek to serve the common good by seeking public office, especially Governor Romney and Congressman Ryan. Make them all worthy to serve you by serving our country. Help them remember that the only just government is the government that serves its citizens rather than itself. - Cardinal Dolan
