God our loving Father, all of Your people are precious in Your eyes, yet we beg You specially to bless the people of our own country with the gift of faith and the hope of salvation.

We pray for those who preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ in America’s great cities and little villages, and who bear witness to You in a thousand different places.

Give them wisdom and courage, Lord, when they are weary, and joy in their generous ministry.

May their message of truth and justice, love and service go forth through all the land, until America is what she strives to be: one nation under God.

Through Christ our Lord. Amen. Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception, Patroness of our country.

Pray for us.
