A Collect for Wisdom for our Leaders

King of all that is, who is above all and to whom all will submit their authority, grant wisdom and temperance to our leaders, that they would recognize their call to govern well and serve their people and that they would know how to choose well, blessing those under their care, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who set an example that all should follow in obedience to you through the Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for everyone, for kings and all who are in high positions, so that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and dignity.’ – 1 Tim. 2:1-2
