PRAYER FOR COUNTRY AND CHURCH



   Pray for the prosperity of our country, and for her victory
under arms; that justice, mercy, and peace continue
to characterize her government, and that they shall rule all
nations.  Pray that the divine presence may still guide and
bless our chief magistrate, those associated with his executive
trust, and our national judiciary; give to our congress
wisdom, and uphold our nation with the right arm of His
righteousness.
   In your peaceful homes remember our brave soldiers,
whether in camp or in battle. *1  Oh, may their love of country,
and their faithful service thereof, be unto them
life-preservers!  May the divine Love succor and protect
them, as at Manila, where brave men, led by the dauntless
Dewey, and shielded by the power that saved them, sailed
victoriously through the jaws of death and blotted out the
Spanish squadron.

*1 This refers to the war between United States and Spain for
the liberty of Cuba.

   Great occasion have we to rejoice that our nation, which

fed her starving foe, - already murdering her peaceful
seamen and destroying millions of her money, - will be
as formidable in war as she has been compassionate in
peace.
   May our Father-Mother God, who in times past hath
spread for us a table in the wilderness and "in the midst
of our enemies," establish us in the most holy faith, plant
our feet firmly on Truth, the rock of Christ, the "substance
of things hoped for" - and fill us with the life and
understanding of God, and good will towards men.
