Almighty God and Father of us all, Whose ways are truth and uprightness, make us to feel Your presence which delivers us from all fear and frustration. Enable us to walk in Your way, thinking good thoughts, speaking good words and doing deeds that we may prove ourselves worthy of the high positions that we hold in the government of this great State.

We pray in the Name of our eternal Saviour. Amen.
