Eternal Father, ever present to bless us in keeping with Your wisdom of our needs, enter our lives, lift us up, lead us on, light up our paths, and give us the courage to keep our hands in Yours. Hear us as we pray for all in positions of leadership in our government that they may make wise decisions and choose the right way.
