Prayer for Healing
You are our refuge and strength, especially in times of tumult and uncertainty. We give thanks for the opportunity to lift our voices in another election even as the outcomes are unclear and votes continue to be counted.
Help us to set aside our anxieties and assumptions about the future and to rest in your promise of a future with hope.
Inspire in us a spirit of unity so that we might renew our commitment to working together across our differences to heal the hurt and division in our country.
In that spirit of unity, inspire us to follow in the loving footsteps of your son, Jesus Christ, as we work to end the hunger and poverty that millions of Americans and people around the world continue to endure. May our advocacy inspire in our elected leaders, both incoming and outgoing, a resolve to end this hunger and poverty once and for all.
In Jesus' name we pray, Amen.
