Every morning I say Baha’i prayers which include family, friends, those who have passed. I know there is war, violence, inhumane actions in all parts this world – on personal levels, small scales and large.

O God! Let his American democracy become glorious in spiritual degrees even as it has aspired to material degrees, and render victorious a JUST government. Confirm this revered nation to upraise the standard of the oneness of humanity, to promulgate the Most Great Peace, to become thereby most glorious and praiseworthy among all the nations of the world.
You can change it in any way that fits your own thoughts, feelings and country. The full prayer is on The HeART of Spirituality where is also a selection of Christian, Jewish, Native American, Hindu, Jainist, Native American, Muslim, Sufi, Zoroastrian etc. prayers
