whose reign extends from sea to sea and whose care endures throughout the ages,
hear our prayers for our country:
grant wisdom to those who govern it
and respect for human life
from conception to natural death
and dignity to every citizen,
so that justice may flourish and all peoples live in unity and peace.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
