A Prayer in a Time of National Crisis

God of all the ages, in your sight nations rise and fall and pass through times of peril.  Now when our land is troubled, be near to judge and save.  May leaders be led by your wisdom; may they search your will and see it clearly.  If we have turned from your way, reverse our ways and help us to repent.  Give us your light and your truth, let them guide us; through Jesus Christ, who is Lord of this world, and our Savior. Amen.
