Goodness Party Prayer for the United States of America

Prayer for the United States of America

Our God and God of our forebearers

we ask your blessing for our country,

for its government, for its leaders, advisers, judges,

and all who exercise just and rightful authority.

Teach them insights from your Torah

that they may administer all affairs of state fairly,

that peace and security, happiness and prosperity,

justice and freedom may forever abide in our midst.

Creator of all flesh bless all the inhabitants

of our country with your spirit.

May citizens of all races and creeds

forge a common bond in true harmony

to banish hatred and bigotry

and to safeguard the ideals and free institutions

that are the pride and glory of our country.

May this land under your providence be

an influence for good throughout the world,

promoting among all nations and people

peace and freedom, helping them to fulfill

the vision of your prophet:

“Nation shall not lift up sword against nation,

neither shall they experience war anymore.”

And let us say Amen.

Prayer for our country read by Ruth Bader Ginsburg on October 3, 2013
