What if you used this quote from John Newton to answer the famous line from President John F. Kennedy? Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country. 

You may not be able to get elected to political office. You may not be able to pay off the national debt. But you can pray for your nation. In fact, praying for your nation is the best service you can render for your nation.

John Newton was involved in the 18th century slave trade. God rescued him from this life. Newton is best known for penning the hymn Amazing Grace.
