A Prayer for Our Nation



O Canada
I pray for thee;
O God
Please have mercy:

Give grace to her workers,
Give wisdom to her leaders,
Give contentment to her people.

O Canada, creation not creator,
Do you have what it takes to compel
   “true patriot love in all of us command”?

God we still look to you to
keep our land glorious and free.

Have mercy on such a nation
   who is forgetting You,
   who thinks her prosperity is by her own hand,
   who is drifting further from Your shores.

O Canada
I pray for you;
O God
Have mercy on our nation.

“May He rule from sea to sea, from the river to the ends of the earth.”  Psalm 72:8

About R.H. (Rusty) Foerger

As I enter the third third of life, I am becoming aware of the role of elders today “to enlarge spiritual vision, being devoted to prayer, living in the face of death, as a living curriculum of the Christian life” (Dr. James M. Houston). I am a life long and life wide learner who seeks to: *decipher the enigma of our worth *rescue from the agony of prayerlessness *integrate spiritual friendship.

    Sharing that prayer today as I lifted our two great countries up to God in prayer!


    • Thanks Lizzy; God knows the sorry state of our countries – made sorrier by the eroding loss of the rich heritage of faith and being torn down in the ruins of post-modernity. May God find His people faithful in prayer and in character despite the days in which we live. Grace to you.
