AN INVOCATION FOR YOUR LOCAL TEA PARTY
Jeff Ziegler, President: SGI
Almighty Triune God, in the name of Christ we approach your eternal throne. Our Father, we acknowledge your providence and transcendence, as the one who upholds all things by the word of his power, who is before all things and by whom all things consist. Lord Jesus Christ, we submit ourselves to your benevolent rule, for the earth is yours and the fullness thereof and your name is above all names. Thou art Lord of the nations.
We humbly entreat thy goodness on behalf of these United States of America. May your Crown and Covenant, your Law, govern our affairs with righteousness and equity. Establish us with pure and undefiled religion and may the everlasting gospel diffuse its heavenly light and spread Christian brotherhood, liberty, and peace from sea to shining sea. We pray for our national and state governments, that all branches and departments may be constantly filled with the wisest and best men. Men who fear God and tremble at your Word. For the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. May all legislative assemblies be granted thine assistance to reward and advance righteousness, even while abhorring and restraining wickedness. May the administration of justice be in the hands of men well qualified for their offices, men not given to bribery or perverse judgments, which would throw down the bridle and sanction of law. Lord, may our civil magistrates with one voice, establish and defend our Constitution, that we the people may know the blessings of good governance. Lord Christ be in our midst, direct and assist us, impressing our hearts with your fear that we may know your present and future blessings in reward for fidelity to your inscripturated will.
We repent for the myriad of sins, which our Republic and our states have committed against your ways. We repent for the great holocaust of abortion wherein the voice of innocence has been so cruelly dashed by the hardness of our own hearts. We repent for the grievous burdens placed upon our people and injury inflicted to the family by excessive-tyrannical taxation. We repent for governments‚ appetite for living beyond its means and jurisdiction, thus mortgaging our children and our children‚s-children‚s future. God grant us forgiveness and grace to act in accordance with your will. May we be resolute and undaunted to establish uncorrupted morality, and justice for all men. Grant us the vigor to protect and defend life, the voice to herald liberty and the spirit of enterprise in the pursuit happiness.
Finally, we stand shoulder to shoulder with our founding fathers and declare that the rights of man come not from the generosity of the state, but from the hand of God. For such liberties we pledge our lives, our treasures and our honor, to preserve and defend the altar of Liberty. SO HELP US GOD!
Now to Him who rules all things according to his own pleasure and wisdom be praise, honor, glory, and dominion forever and ever, Through Christ Our Lord AMEN.
