A Prayer for the Nation
O Shepherd of Israel. The One Who sits on Your heavenly throne above the angels, let Your light shine! Stir up Your power and come to save us! O Lord, You showed favor to Your land. It has produced its fruit. You have forgiven the sins of Your people. You have covered all their sin.
O God of all, show us Your loving kindness and save us. Bring us back to life again so that Your people may be happy in You.
Your saving power is near those who fear You, so Your shining greatness may live in the land. Loving kindness and truth have met together. Peace and what is good and true have kissed each other. Truth comes up from the earth. From heaven comes all goodness. Yes, Lord, You will give what is good and our land will give its fruit. What is right and good will go before You and make a way for Your steps.
O God of all, I beg Your return. Look down from heaven and see us. Give us new life again and we will call on Your name.
Please bring us back to You. Make Your face shine upon us and grace us with Your presence that we may receive our salvation. Show Your loving kindness toward us and bring good into our lives once again. May Your way be known on the earth and Your saving power among all nations. May the people praise You, O God. May the nations be glad and sing for joy. For You will be fair when You judge the people and rule the nations of the earth. May the people praise You.
O God of all, bring us back to You. Make Your face shine upon us and grant us our salvation so that we may have life again.
