Philip Kosloski - published on 07/04/20

Ask God to bless and protect your country with this prayer.

God is often known as the “King of kings,” and Christians throughout the centuries have always asked for his blessings upon their country. He alone has the power to change hearts and can bring about a revolution within the heart of any leader around the world.

Here is a prayer adapted from the Family Prayer Book that asks God’s blessing upon your country, asking him to have mercy upon all those who inhabit it.

O God, by whose mercy the world subsists, and to whose power every nation of the earth is subject, have mercy on this nation, we beseech you, and, according to its necessities, which are all known to you, so pour forth your blessings on it that, by the help of thy grace, it may in all things be well-pleasing in your sight; through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
