Open your courts to the prayers of my countrymen and women, LORD. Don’t turn your face away in the hour of our need. Answer us speedily at the time we call. The days of our republic are passing like smoke, its bones wither as the grass. Restore us to your favor, O God. Our enemies attack us from afar and from within. But you are enthroned forever, remembered throughout all generations. Arise and have pity on our nation. It is time to favor her. The appointed time has come! Appear in your glory. Give regard to the prayers of the destitute. Let this be recorded for a generation to come, so that a people yet to be created may praise the LORD. Lend compassion to our land. Don’t take her away in the midst of her days, you whose years endure for all generations. This is our plea in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“Let this be recorded for a generation to come, so that a people yet to be created may praise the LORD.” (Psalm 102:08 ESV)
