Here's a beautiful prayer for Canada I stumbled across at Holy Family in Bolton, from Knights of Columbus , Patriotic (fourth) Degree.
O, Lord, we gather today in Your presence
and ask St. Joseph, patron of Canada,
to watch over us, to bless our land with
honest industry, truthful education and an
honourable way of life
Save us from violence, discord and
confusion; from pride, arrogance and from
every evil course of action. Make us, who
come from many different backgrounds and
countries, a united people- one in purpose
Give our government a spirit of wisdom and
compassion that there may be justice and
peace in our land.
When times are prosperous, lead us to
thanksgiving, and when times are troubled,
lead us to a deepening trust in you.
We ask this in the name of Jesus Christ Our
