You creator God
          who has ordered us
              in families and communities,
              in clans and tribes,
              in states and nations.

You creator God
          who enact your governance
               in ways overt and
               in ways hidden.
           You exercise your will for
               peace and for justice and for freedom.

We give you thanks for the peaceable order of
     our nation and for the chance of choosing---
          all the manipulative money notwithstanding.

We pray now for new governance
    that you will and purpose may prevail,
    that our leaders may have a sense
        of justice and goodness,
    that we as citizens may care about the
       public face of your purpose.

We pay in the name of Jesus who was executed
     by the authorities.
