To the Judges and officers of our Courts give understanding and integrity that human rights may be safeguarded and justice served.  And finally, teach our people to rely on your strength and to accept their responsibilities to their fellow citizens, that they may elect trustworthy leaders and make wise decisions for the well-being of our society; that we may serve you faithfully in our generation and honor your holy Name. For yours is the kingdom, O Lord, and you are exalted as head above all. Amen.  Other prayers are available by clicking here.
