A Prayer for Courage

May we pray:

Our heavenly father, we thank you for our nation and the opportunities this country has given to millions of people over the last 300 plus years. "Opportunity" is the one word that best describes our country.

Currently, our ox is in the ditch. We have millions of families out of work and we have millions of people who have forgotten how to work. The old saying "when the going gets tough, the tough get going' seems to have vanished from our way of thinking.

We pray that our people will find the courage to never give up. We pray that our captains of industry will find work positions for those ready and willing to work.

We pray that our political leadership will support the entrepreneurial spirit across America.

We pray for the souls of our fallen soldiers. Please be with our men and women serving our country around the world.
