We pray for our nation in this time of transition. We pray for President Elect Biden
and Vice President Elect Harris, that God may guide and protect them
as they form their administration, and that they may lead us
to unity, justice, and peace.

From Archbishop John Carroll’s Prayer for Government (1789)
Almighty and eternal God,
you have revealed your glory to all nations.
God of power and might, wisdom and justice,
through you authority is rightly administered,
laws are enacted, and judgment is decreed.
We commend to your unbounded mercy
all citizens of the United States,
that we may be blessed in the knowledge
and sanctified in the observance of your holy law.
May we be preserved in union
and that peace which the world cannot give;
and, after enjoying the blessings of this life,
be admitted to those which are eternal.
We pray to you, who are Lord and God,
for ever and ever. Amen.
