Now we pray~
- for a country badly divided, that we may find a way to work together
- for a president who faces decisions that will affect our lives, that he choose pathways of wisdom
- that all leaders guide with wisdom
- for those who see this election outcome as hopeless, that they might quickly recover their hope
- that the needs of each citizen and non-citizen be met
- for patience, love, and generosity in our interactions with others
- for understanding and the ability to communicate, even with those with whom we do not agree
Watch over our country and all those who live in it. Lead us on the path of peace and mercy, always closer to your kingdom.
We pray in the name of your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
