  1. Lord in the mighty name of Jesus christ I commit my country and people into your hands. Please heal and cleanse our land and all Sierra Leoneans all over the world. Forgive us for our past mistakes and whatever that we are doing that is not of the all mighty. No evil shall befall my beloved Sierra Leone and in Jesus christ name. Amen.
