Hierarchies and authority are essential scaffolding in God’s plan of creation. Yet while others rightly have authority over many things, this must always be exercised in accordance with God’s divine law.
Sovereign Lord, you reign over heaven and earth.
The angels adore you in ceaseless praise.
All creation is subject to you and gives you honor.
Be with our elected men and women,
that they may serve as you command
and enact laws that reflect your divine will of love.
