Prayer written by Lloyd Ogilvie, chaplain, United States Senate, for the 2002 National Day of Prayer (May 2, 2002). Taken from

Gracious God, all that we have and are is a result of Your amazing generosity. Since September 11th, in the battle against terrorism, we have discovered again that You truly are our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.

We rededicate ourselves to be one nation under You. In You we trust. We reaffirm our accountability to You, to the absolutes of Your Commandments, and to justice in our society.

Bless our President, Congress, and all our leaders with supernatural power. We commit ourselves to be faithful to You as Sovereign of our land and as our personal Lord and Savior.

NODER'S NOTE: In case anyone's wondering, I posted this as everyoneexcepttrolls because (1) I didn't actually write it, and (2) I don't actually agree with it. It's not a troll, despite containing the sentence "Bless our |President, Congress, and all our leaders with supernatural power." --tregoweth
