2 Sara Di Diego = "There is another prayer For Our Country in the Book of Common Prayers:Almighty God, who hast given us this good land for our heritage: We humbly beseech thee that we may always prove ourselves a people mindful of thy favor and glad to do thy will. Bless our land with honorable industry, sound learning, and pure manners. Save us from violence, discord, and confusion; from pride and arrogance, and from every evil way. Defend our liberties, and fashion into one united people the multitudes brought hither out of many kindreds and tongues. Endue with the spirit of wisdom those to whom in thy Name we entrust the authority of government, that there may be justice and peace at home, and that, through obedience to thy law, we may show forth thy praise among the nations of the earth. In the time of prosperity, fill our hearts with thankfulness, and in the day of trouble, suffer not our trust in thee to fail; all which we ask through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.Work Cited:http://www.holytrinitygnv.org/ministries/justice-compassion/peace-prayers-bcp/"

4 Ben N = "All the universe serves the will of God, and all phenomena work together to accomplish His Divine purpose. Humankind is an important part of that plan, human consciousness is the way in which life becomes self-aware. God is the life, the Spirit within all things, and through human beings He achieves a new level of sentience and intelligence. We are all truly made for God's glory."
5 Ben N = "Being created in the image and the likeness of God, we have liberty & free will. But we find our rightful place in the universe, and the fulfillment of our soul's purpose, when we live in accordance with God's will."
