“O kind Father, continue Thy mercy and favor to me this day and ever hereafter.
Preserve and defend our rulers in Church and State.
Bless the people of this land.
Be a father to the fatherless,
A comforter to the comfortless,
A deliverer to the captives and
A physician to the sick.
Let Thy blessings be upon our friends, kindred and families. Amen.”
