A Psalm for POTUS



Lord, give our President Your wisdom and discernment, that he may govern the people with righteousness and grace, and that he may grant justice and mercy to those without lobbyists. May Your natural resources be equitably accessible and sustainable. May he defend and deliver us from corporate and financial abuse, and from external and internal foes - our enemies now being his enemies.

Lord, give our President success, that we may know a world of shalom and fellowship. May he be a gentle rain that brings forth goodness and peace. May he be the President of all, from coast to coast, from south to north. May our allies respect him and may our enemies fear him, for he shall deliver the powerless and help the helpless. May he always know empathy and act thereof. From up out of violence and oppression, may he raise up the youth of our inner-cities and redeem their lives, for precious is their blood.

Lord, give our President success, that we may all succeed together. May we pray for and bless him without ceasing, and for our nation that no one know hunger or deprivation, war or injustice. May history remember his name with warmth and fondness, and may the world remember him as a benefactor and champion. 

Blessed be the name of the Lord, who alone can do these wondrous things. Blessed be the name of the Lord, who blesses all creation.
