O Lord our God, we thank You for the blessings of this great land; for the fruits of its soil, for water and all the untold resources of the earth, for opportunities for work and play, for freedom of speech and freedom of worship. And as we thank You for these and all Your blessings and as we recognize ourselves as stewards of these blessings, we pray for Your guidance in all our actions. Make our Nation great in its greatness in our use as trustees of Your blessings. Make us ready for the discipline and self-control demanded of the age in which we serve, as we "show forth Your loving kindness in the morning and Your faithfulness every night." (Psalm 92:2) Amen.
