USCCB - NAB - Psalm 144:
"Reach out your hand from on high; deliver me from the many waters; rescue me from the hands of foreign foes.
6 Their mouths speak untruth; their right hands are raised in lying oaths.
O God, a new song I will sing to you; on a ten-stringed lyre I will play for you.
You give victory to kings; you delivered David your servant. From the menacing sword
deliver me; rescue me from the hands of foreign foes. Their mouths speak untruth; their right hands are raised in lying oaths.
May our sons be like plants well nurtured from their youth, Our daughters, like carved columns, shapely as those of the temple.
May our barns be full with every kind of store. May our sheep increase by thousands, by tens of thousands in our fields; may our oxen be well fattened.
May there be no breach in the walls, no exile, no outcry in our streets.
Happy the people so blessed; happy the people whose God is the LORD."

God’s Sovereign Will
"The LORD does whatever pleases him, in the heavens and on the earth, in the seas and all their depths.
Mighty God, Your will is sovereign and perfect, and You do as You see fit in the affairs of humankind and in all Your creation.
We acknowledge that we do not fully understand Your perfect will. Yet, we ask You to work through the election process this year to bring it about in our nation. We ask You to lift up those You want to lead our country, our states, our towns and villages and no others. May Your will be done by the citizens of our nation, and may You be honored and pleased in the results. In Jesus' loving name, Amen"
