A Prayer for our Nation

Praying Hands
(Betende Hände)
by Albrecht Dürer
Dear Lord God, you are a Great God. You are a good, good father. You love us and care for us. You have a plan for my life and you have a plan for this nation. You are in control of all things and for this we praise you.
Lord, as we are heading into this years presidential election, we ask that your will be done. Please accomplish your purposes through this election no matter who is elected. Lord, have your way in our lives and in this country.
God, our nation has wandered far from you. There are so many awful things happening every day in this world and in this nation. Sometimes it is hard for us to believe that you are in control. Sometimes it is hard for me to believe that nothing happens aside from your will. Please bring our nation back to you.
Lord, as in all things, not our will but yours be done. Whoever is elected, please accomplish your purposes. Strengthen the Christians in this nation so that they can stand up for what they believe in. Please assure us that you ARE accomplishing your will.
Help us to honor those that you put in authority over us. Help us most of all to honor you.
In your name I pray, Amen.
