    Let us pray.  Father, we thank You for the guidance and grace                                   
    that has sustained us throughout this past week.  We                                            
    especially thank You for answering prayer, and we ask that                                      
    You would continue to favor us with Your presence.                                              
                                                                                                    
    We confess, Lord, that we are weak and that we need Your                                        
    strength to sustain us.  You have told us in the Psalms:  "Wait                                 
    on the Lord; be of good courage, and He shall strengthen                                        
    Your heart."  We confess that we have not always done right,                                    
    but we thank You for the promise that when we return to You,                                    
    that You will have mercy on us and that You will abundantly                                     
    pardon.

    We pray, O God, that You would favor this nation.  Bless our                                    
    President and all those in authority.  Direct his advisers and                                  
    give wisdom to our Congress in these stressful days.  Inspire                                   
    our courts and our clergy with integrity and deliver us from                                    
       the hands of our enemies and give us peace among ourselves.                                 
                                                                                                    
    Keep us ever mindful of You this day as we go out and as we                                     
    come in.  We continue to pray for the Ogan family and for                                       
    others who have been mentioned this morning who are ill and                                     
    pray that You would continue to provide them with strength                                      
    and healing.  May we have the opportunity to gather in our                                      
    respective places of worship this weekend, and may You bless                                    
    and protect each one as they travel.  We offer up these humble                                  
    and imperfect prayers today in Christ's Name and for His                                        
    sake.  Amen.
