Prayer for The United States of Amer­ica
Com­posed by His Excel­lency Arch­bishop Carlo Maria Viganò

Almighty and Eter­nal God, King of Kings and Lord of Lords: gra­ciously turn your gaze to us who invoke You with confidence.

Bless us, cit­i­zens of the United States of Amer­ica; grant peace and pros­per­ity to our Nation; illu­mi­nate those who gov­ern us so that they may com­mit them­selves to the com­mon good, in respect for Your holy Law.

Pro­tect those who, defend­ing the invi­o­lable prin­ci­ples of the Nat­ural Law and Your Com­mand­ments, must face the repeated assaults of the Enemy of the human race.

Keep in the hearts of Your chil­dren courage for the truth, love for virtue and per­se­ver­ance in the midst of trials.

Make our fam­i­lies grow in the exam­ple that Our Lord has given us, together with His Most Holy Mother and Saint Joseph in the home of Nazareth; give to our fathers and moth­ers the gift of Strength, to edu­cate wisely the chil­dren with which you have blessed them.

Give courage to those who, in spir­i­tual com­bat, fight the good fight as sol­diers of Christ against the furi­ous forces of the chil­dren of darkness.

Keep each one of us, O Lord, in your Most Sacred Heart, and above all He whom Your Prov­i­dence has placed at the head of our Nation.

Bless the Pres­i­dent of the United States of Amer­ica, so that aware of his respon­si­bil­ity and his duties, he may be a knight of jus­tice, a defender of the oppressed, a firm bul­wark against Your ene­mies, and a proud sup­porter of the chil­dren of light.

Place the United States of Amer­ica and the whole world under the man­tle of the Queen of Vic­to­ries, our Uncon­quered Leader in bat­tle, the Immac­u­late Con­cep­tion. It is thanks to her, and through your Mercy, that the hymn of praise rises to you, O Lord, from the chil­dren whom you have redeemed in the Most Pre­cious Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
