Prayer For Our Nation
Heavenly Father, we come to you today as a divided people. The visit of the Pope this week served to divide us further rather than bring us together. I ask that you remind everyone that Christ served no special interests, he was not interested in worldly politics, he wanted the salvation of every man. He asked us to serve each other, including those who are immigrants, or homeless, or have been kicked aside by society. We need to remember that the least among us is deeply loved by our Father in Heaven.
Today we learned that one of the leaders of our country will step down. He has been the focus of many debates and his loyalty to his principles questioned. Today I ask that you give him peace, may he begin his life after politics without the vitriol and battles following him. More importantly, I ask that You touch each member of the House of Representatives to elect a godly man or woman who will lead by following Your principles. May someone who seeks your face and walks your path take up the gavel. May this be the start of a Heavenly renewal in the halls of our Capital Building.
All this I wish, in the name of your Son, Jesus Christ, Amen.
