Prayer for Our Country

O Most Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of
Mercy, at this most critical time, we entrust the
United States of America to your loving care.

Most Holy Mother, we beg you to reclaim this
land for the glory of your Son. Overwhelmed
with the burden of the sins of our nation, we cry
to you from the depths of our hearts and seek
refuge in your motherly protection.

Look down with mercy upon us and touch the
hearts of our people. Open our minds to the great
worth of human life and to the responsibilities
that accompany human freedom.

Free us from the falsehoods that lead to the evil of
abortion and threaten the sanctity of family life. Grant
our country the wisdom to proclaim that God's law
is the foundation on which this nation was founded,
and that He alone is the True Source of our cherished
rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

o Merciful Mother, give us the courage to reject
the culture of death and the strength to build a
new Culture of Life. Amen.
