Almighty God, we give thanks for the land and government that is our heritage. We give thanks, for the freedom to gather and worship you without fear. Bless our United States, and make us who came from many nations, with many languages, a united people that delights in our many gifts. Send us your Guiding Spirit of generosity and welcome as we address health care, immigration, trade, and others concerns.

God of the nations, send your Spirit of wisdom and help upon our elected leaders at levels, especially President Trump, Governor Steve Bullock, Montana legislators Steve Daines, Jon Tester, Greg Gianforte, and our State and county legislators and judicial officials. Where they are corrupt; purify them. Where they are in error, direct them. Where they are right, strengthen them. Where they are divided, reunite them; for the sake of peace, freedom, and justice for all.

Almighty God, watch over the men and women of our armed forces, at home and abroad. Keep their families safe and well. We give thanks for our nation’s veterans, who have served the values of democracy and freedom. Send hope and help to veterans who are wounded or troubled.
