A Prayer for Health, Knowledge and Virtue

Let us pray,

Most holy and glorious Lord God, the giver of all good gifts.

You have promised that where two or three are gathered together in thy name, you will be in their midst and bless them. In thy name we most humbly assemble.

As a people, we have much to be thankful for, as this year comes to a close.

The promise for the coming future year is most encouraging. We must have faith, patience and courage.

The greatness of our nation will be restored. We are the longest living democracy on earth. May we be mindful of this on a regular basis. Every Christian and all other persons of good will should be knowledgeable of our American history and constitution. We did not get here by chance. We got here by divine providence.

We pray for our friend Kay Heflin that her health may be restored.

We pray for our leaders that they may advance in knowledge and virtue.

We pray for all the members of our armed forces and their families.

Dear God, bless us and bless our nation as we continue in the struggle to do thy will

We pray in the name of Jesus Christ,
