Eternal God,
Before whom all creation bows,
and Father of all humanity
another week of life and testing unfolds before us.

With the breath of spring upon us,
may Congress be given fresh vision
on how to address the needs of Your people;
and as a good steward of national resources
be delivered from alien forces
and the tyranny of money.

By respecting the goodness of your creation
and recognizing Your image in each person,
make this nation an instrument of peace
and an ambassador of reconciliation
in Your Holy Name.

Amen.

– Reverend Daniel P. Coughlin
