What we have witnessed over the past week leads me to believe that we need to pray for our nation. Bishop has given us a great prayer. Perhaps you could print it out and keep it close. Also, pray for peace for you and your family. We must strive for peace in our families before we find peace with others, before we can find peace in our nation.
Almighty God, our Rock and our Salvation, we beg You to pour out your Holy Spirit upon our fractured nation.
Heal the divisions that separate us and remove all obstacles to authentic unity.
May you guide this great country of ours and lead our citizens to embrace one another as neighbors and fellow countrymen and women, created in your own image and likeness.
Give us a fresh opportunity for renewal and true solidarity for the common good of our homeland.
May we return to our true identity as a people of faith and charity, help us to always remain One Nation, Under God, Indivisible, with Liberty and Justice for All.
Through Christ our Lord. AMEN
May the Lord bless you in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen
