Today, we pray for our home country
Lord Jesus, we surrender to You our motherland. Its people, faith and culture. Almighty God, bless our nation and make it true to the ideas of freedom, justice and brotherhood for all. Guard us from war, from natural calamities, from chaos. Be close to our statesmen; give them integrity, honesty, vision and courage, as they decide the future of our country. Make me more deeply aware of my heritage; realising not only my rights, but also my responsibilities as a citizen. Make this great land and all its people know Your will clearly, and stand up for it, for the salvation of the entire nation. Amen.
