Almighty God, Creator and Sustainer of the universe, how majestic is Your Name in all the earth! We give thanks to You for the gift of life and for Your loving grace that enables us to enjoy Your presence each day.

Heavenly Father, we thank You for President Bush, Vice President Cheney, the Cabinet, members of the House of Representatives and their families. We ask Your divine blessings upon each of them as they give direction to our country. Give them wisdom, strength, and courage to accomplish the task of leading our great nation.

Lord, we ask You to bless our soldiers and members of the armed forces that are in harms way. Please watch over them with Your protective hand and give them courage to face each day with resolve and strength. And bless their families with Your daily presence and love.

Father, we give thanks unto You, for You are good and Your mercy endures forever. How majestic is Your Name!

Amen.
