ALMIGHTY GOD, our heavenly Father, who art ever ready to hear the prayers of those who call on thee; Grant, we humbly beseech thee, the abundance of thy blessings, both temporal and spiritual, upon the United States of Mexico.

Guide and guard its President, the members of his Cabinet, the members of Congress, the Governors of the several States, and all others in authority. Put into their minds good desires, increase in them true religion, nourish them with all goodness; and grant that by the operation of thy Holy Spirit they may ever be led to put forth such efforts on behalf of thy people as will give them release from all that hinders and prevents a true knowledge of thee and the value which thou hast set upon the sons of men.

Open the eyes of thy children to the light of the everlasting Gospel, quicken their minds and make known to them the liberty which is in thee. All of which we ask in His Name who came to set us free, thy Son, our Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen.
