It is easy to look at the divisions in our country and the injustices and loose hope. But our merciful God is first and foremost our reason for hope. Let us place our country in his hands.

Prayer for Our Nation
Heavenly Father, Lord of all people
We place our nation in your loving care.
In your mercy, forgive our sins
Both past and present.
Heal our divisions and bind our wounds.
Bring us together for the common good.
Teach us to love one another
So that we may truly be the United States.
Renew in us a commitment
To the dignity of all human life.
Let us respect the unborn, the prisoner,
The immigrant, the aged, the poor,
The marginalized, the discarded.
Help us to remember to be grateful
For our freedom and resources.
Inspire us to want to share these
With those who are less fortunate.
Grant that we may be a nation
Inspired to work for your kingdom
And the day when all of your children
Live together in love, freedom, and unity.
We ask this in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, your son,
Who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
One God forever and ever. Amen.
