MY PRAYER FOR MY COUNTRY
Written by Ernest Holmes
BELIEVING in the Divine destiny of the United States of America and in
the preservation of liberty, security, and self expression for all,
I offer this, my prayer for my country:
I know that Divine Intelligence governs the destiny of the
United States of America,
directing the thought and the activity of all who
guide its affairs.
I know that success, prosperity, and happiness are the gifts of
freedom and are the Divine heritage of everyone in this country.
I know that success, prosperity, and happiness are now operating in
the affairs of every individual in this country.
I know that Divine guidance enlightens the collective mind of the
people of this country, causing it to know that economic security may
come to all without the loss of either personal freedom or individual
I know that no one can believe or be led to believe that freedom must
be surrendered in order to insure economic security for all.
THE All-Knowing Mind contains the answer to every problem which
confronts this country. I know that every leader in this country is
now directed by this All-Knowing Mind and has the knowledge of a
complete solution to every problem. Each is compelled to act upon this
knowledge to the end that abundance, security,
and peace shall come to all.
AND I know that this spiritual democracy shall endure, guaranteeing to
everyone in this country personal liberty, happiness, and self-expression.
and so it is!
