O God of Heaven and earth,
who created the people of every tribe and tongue from one man, we praise and adore You for Your immeasurable wisdom. We praise You for Your purpose in causing us to be born in this Land of India. We accept this as a privilege and a responsibility.
O God of creation,
we praise You for the incredible diversity of languages, cultures and ethnic races in our Land. We thank You for our rich natural resources of water, soil and minerals. We adore You for freeing our nation from alien rule and giving us political independence. We praise You, Lord, for everyone who laboured and laid his life for this cause.
O Lord of Hosts,
we pray for the rulers of our Nation. We ask that You keep them in Your hands that they would serve selflessly, impartially, truthfully and without corruption. Let the evil forces that mar the peace of our Nation be destroyed. Let all the people abide by the law of the land respecting one another. Let an attitude of benevolent philanthropic giving develop and grow among the rich of our Land that they may bless the poor and the destitute.
O God, who made heavens,
send us the rain in due season that our Land may not be gripped with famine and drought. We pray Your special blessings upon the individuals and relief organisations who render service to the poor, the downtrodden, the destitute and the orphans and such who are less fortunate. We pray that the liberal aids sent across from the developed nations would not be misappropriated by those in authority. Lord, have mercy upon the millions of Indians who are suffering even without their basic needs.
O God our Redeemer,
we sing Your praises for sending Thomas, one of the twelve disciples of Your Son, to our country even in the first century. Revive us and stir us up out of our slumber that the Church in India may rise up to fulfil the Great Commission in this very generation.
In the Name of Jesus the Lord of the Nations, Amen!
