A Prayer for Unity and Understanding

January 7, 2021

God of justice, God of reconciliation, 

In light of the events of January 6th, we come to you in humility and with hope.

We pray for our nation.

We pray for justice in this land and safety for all people.

We pray for healing for all those injured bodily, emotionally and spiritually.

Hear us as we also pray for reconciliation and peace. 

In a nation so divided, we ask that our leaders would find ways to move forward in their tasks to restore wholeness to our government

and to learn from the horrific lessons of this last week.

We ask that we, as your baptized people, would not only look upon these events with distaste,

but that we would aslo act in our roles citizens to work for the more perfect union,

the ideal on which this nation was founded. 

The future is in your hands, O God. 

We place our trust and our hope in you.

In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

Special Prayers

Our Heartfelt prayers for strength, comfort, healing and peace in this time of grief.
