Lord protect us from the enemy outside and within, strengthen us against evil,
In the Name of The Father and of The Son, and of The Holy Sprit we pray

In my former life in Protestantism I frequently encouraged the use of this hymn attributed to Mae Probst:

Still beautiful for spacious skies
Still amber waves of grain;
Still purple mountain majestie
Above the fruitful plain;
But Lord, our hearts no longer see
Your scepter o’er our land,
We followed men who promised ease
And built on sinking sand.

Yet Lord, in mercy, still you wait
To hear our contrite call
For only you can bless our land
As we give you our all;
Then help us to confess our sin
And leave our wicked ways.
To humbly seek your face in prayer
And serve you all our days.

O cleanse and sanctify this land
Your Name keep ever here;
As we acknowledge you, our Lord
In reverential fear.
America, America,
Seek God on bended knee
“till Jesus Christ is lifted up
From sea to shining sea.

Our leaders, Father, need your light
In mercy stretch your hand
To guide us through the trackless night
And save our periled land.
America, America,
May God your faith restore
“till Father, Son, and Holy Ghost
Are praised from shore to shore.

Christians have always prayed for civil leaders even when they were being persecuted. We all need to pray that wise and just men and women pursue peace not conflict, truth not lies, service not power.

May God preserve our Union in harmony, may He chasten the rebels who claim righteousness when they have none, may He give courage for those who stand up for the marginal and impoverished, defending them from the powerful whose greed and lust for power knows no bounds.
