I lift up my soul to you, Almighty God. I trust only in you. Make me know your ways. Teach me your paths, and lead me in your truth. Forgive my failings and my transgressions, O God of my salvation. Be the salvation of my nation, Father. Pardon our guilt for your namesake. May the wantonly treacherous be put to shame. Pluck our feet out of the net set to trip and destroy us. Lift our eyes to fear you, for your friendship is for those who do, and you make known your covenant to those who honor and revere you. Turn and be gracious to us, for our troubles are enlarged. Redeem our nation out of its distress, O God. Lead us in what is right. May integrity and uprightness preserve us as we wait upon you in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.
“He leads the humble in what is right, and teaches the humble his way.” (Psalm 25:9 ESV)
