For the Civil Authorities

O Almighty God, who from thy throne in heaven beholdest all the inhabitants of the earth, we beseech thee for thy blessing upon thy servant, the President of the United States, and upon all others in authority, that they may so rule in thy fear that we, thy people, may lead quiet and peaceable lives, in all godliness and honesty. Amen.

  • From "Second Order for Vespers" in Gloria Patri Revised (1903), p. 130
