Psalm 21 For Our Nation

I rejoice, O God,
that you have allowed this nation to prosper.
In spite of our sins, we have our heart’s desires--
the blessings of prosperity,
a measure of security,
and more power than we can wisely use.
Help us to move towards justice
and use our power well.
Help us to understand that when we give
to others in the world we give to ourselves.
Help us trust you
and appreciate the many names others use for you.
Help us to be wise, O God, wise and great.
