Dear God, it is Presidents' Day
In this nation in which we live.
We are so grateful and thankful
For the blessings that You give.
Please lead and guide our President,
We ask as we earnestly pray.
We pray for his heart to be right,
So he can lead in a Godly way.
Lord, our President is just a man.
He really needs Your help, we know.
Please help him as he leads us,
And upon him wisdom, please bestow.
In the past, You gave to us
Some Presidents with visions.
You gave to us some great leaders,
Who prayed for the right decisions.
We thank you for the leadership
Of great Presidents of the past.
You used some to do Your will,
And for You, they stood stedfast.
Now, Lord, please grant to us
The forgiveness for our sin,
And please guide us as a nation.
This we ask in Jesus' name, Amen.
