A Psalm for the City

O God,

You have given us our dwelling places.
Teach us how to live well within its boundaries.
Help us to learn the language of your concern for all peoples.
We seek your unction of peace and prosperity upon its borders.
We lift up our governors for anointed protection and wise endowment.
Grant us discerning joy to recognize your wisdom why we are where we are now.

Amen.
