For the American President, Congress, and Supreme Court
Give the king Thy justice, O God,
May he defend the cause of the poor of the people, give deliverance to the needy, and crush the oppressor!
For all of you I pray to Almighty God that He may grant you the gift of wisdom in your decisions, prudence in your words and actions, and compassion in the exercise of the authority that is yours, so that in your noble office you will always render true service to the people.
God Bless America!
