A Prayer for POTUS and the United States of America

Composed by His Excellency

Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò

Almighty and Eternal God, King of Kings and Lord of Lords: graciously

turn your gaze to us who invoke You with confidence.

Bless us, citizens of the United States of America; grant peace and

prosperity to our Nation; illuminate those who govern us so that they may

commit themselves to the common good, in respect for Your holy Law.

Protect those who, defending the inviolable principles of the Natural Law

and Your Commandments, must face the repeated assaults of the Enemy

of the human race.

Keep in the hearts of Your children courage for the truth, love for virtue

and perseverance in the midst of trials.

Make our families grow in the example that Our Lord has given us, together

with His Most Holy Mother and Saint Joseph in the home of Nazareth;

give to our fathers and mothers the gift of Strength, to educate wisely the

children with which you have blessed them.

Give courage to those who, in spiritual combat, fight the good fight as

soldiers of Christ against the furious forces of the children of darkness.

Keep each one of us, O Lord, in your Most Sacred Heart, and above all

He whom Your Providence has placed at the head of our Nation.

Bless the President of the United States of America, so that aware of his

responsibility and his duties, he may be a knight of justice, a defender of

the oppressed, a firm bulwark against Your enemies, and a proud

supporter of the children of light.

Place the United States of America and the whole world under the mantle

of the Queen of Victories, our Unconquered Leader in battle, the

Immaculate Conception. It is thanks to her, and through your Mercy, that

the hymn of praise rises to you, O Lord, from the children whom you have

redeemed in the Most Precious Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
