Please pray with us for our country:

 

For taking the planet’s resources for granted, Lord have mercy.

For putting immigrants in cages, Lord have mercy.

For tolerating rampant racism and misogyny, Lord have mercy.

For the theft of native lands for profit, Lord have mercy.

For trampling upon the mentally ill and the vulnerable, Lord have mercy.

 

For the health and safety of our elected officials, Lord hear our prayer.

For hearts that welcome the stranger in our midst, Lord hear our prayer.

For resilience in our ecosystems, Lord hear our prayer.

For a willingness to take care of our neighbor in need, Lord hear our prayer.

For a spirit of unity to move forward together, Lord hear our prayer.

 

From the horrific loss of human life to Covid, deliver us Lord.

From the economic slump due to Covid, deliver us Lord.

From hatred and division, deliver us Lord.

From selfishness and indifference, deliver us Lord.

From fear of change, deliver us Lord.

 

For the great country of the United States of America, we thank you Lord.

For opportunities to serve one another, we thank you Lord.

For each new day and each breath we take, we thank you Lord.

For our amazing diversity and wealth of talent, we thank you Lord.

For the chance to begin again, we thank you Lord.
