Prayer for the New President

A prayer for civil authorities (excerpt from the Liturgy of St. Basil):

"Be mindful, O Lord, of all civil authorities and of our armed forces; grant them a secure and lasting peace; speak good things into their hearts concerning thy Church and all thy people, that we in their tranquility may lead a calm and peaceful life in all reverence and godliness. Establish the good in thy goodness, and make good the evil, by thy benevolence."


  1. That's a great idea! I'm worried for America, but maybe I need to PRAY more?
