Holy God, we lift up our nation today. We pray that you will help us to be a nation that does what is best for all people. We pray that you will extend your grace and mercy to us in these tumultuous times. We know that you are able to give all of us what we need to come out on the other side of this pandemic with our unity intact. We ask your blessing on us, this day.
Lord God, we pray for our nation’s leaders. We pray that you will give them grace and courage to make sound and just decisions that align with your will. We pray that you will touch each person who occupies a decision-making role. Let your unconditional love overflow in their hearts that they may also pour compassion on each other.
In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
