This is a beautiful prayer and one that every country can pray because the state of this world is precarious. We all need the peace that prayers bring. Many blessings to Subhana Zein who authored this prayer.

Today, 17 August 2012, Indonesia celebrates the Independence Day, so I wrote a poem, “A Prayer for My Country”.

Merdeka! 🙂

O my Lord,

My prayer is simple.

*

Let the water and the soil, the air, and the fruit of
 
my country be sweet, my Lord.
 
*
 
Let the homeless find sanctuary not only for their body
 
but also their soul, my Lord.
 
*
 
Let the ignorance find their ways to enlightenment
 
and be content with humility, my Lord.
 
*
 
Let promises be fulfilled and
 
prayers be answered, my Lord.
 
*
Let compassion become the garment of the people
 
and love become their only way of life, my Lord.
 
*
 
*
