A Lutheran Prayer for Good Government

Martin Luther:
We pray especially for the government under whose care and protection you have called us. Bless it with success and prosperity. May the word of God, decency, and all honesty be advanced; may all of the offense of which there is much be prevented; and may the common welfare be properly and peaceably provided. Make us obedient and devout. Amen.
Luther's Prayers (ed. Herbert F. Brokering; Augsberg: Minneapolis, 1994), 98.
