Prayer for India
O Lord God, Creator of All!
Stretch forth your divine hand to guard and protect our country.
Preserve it from material and spiritual harm.
May it have peace with the neighboring countries and with all the nations of the world.
Help its people to bear each other's burdens and live in harmony with one another and solve their disputes amicably.
Endow the rich with a compassionate heart that in their plenty they may not neglect the poor.
Provide the poor with their daily bread.
Favor the workman with good health and the student with a mind to study.
Give Wisdom and tact to its leader especially when they have different decisions to make and give them courage and strength to adhere to what is right and true and honest.
Dear Lord, lead this country of ours to progress and prosperity and keep it steadfast in its faith in you.
Father, We thank thee for the night
And for the pleasant morning light
For the rest and food and loving care
And all that makes the world so fair
Help us to do the things we should
To be to others kind and good
In all we do, in all, we say
To grow more loving every day

India is my Country
All Indians are my brothers and sisters.
