In Time of National Distress

O Lord God, heavenly Father,
by our evil doings and constant disobedience
we have deserved your punishment,
but for your name’s sake spare us.
Restrain everything that would harm us
and protect your suffering people,
that your Word may be declared faithfully
and without hindrance, and that we,
amending our sinful lives,
may walk obediently
to your holy commandments;
through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.
