A Prayer For The Candidates
Won't you join with me in prayer....
May God have mercy upon us....
Our dear, kind, gracious Heavenly Father,
If it be thy will and wisdom, we beseech thee that thou wouldst watch over, inspire, and guide our leadership candidates with thy inspiration to demonstrate courage and truthfulness in these last days before Americans choose their leaders and representatives for another term of governance.
May they be protected from slander and from those who would cause them harm in any way.
May these candidates have the courage of their true convictions, so that Americans can choose wisely and in keeping with their best intentions to seek unity of purpose in sharing their talents, their charity, hopes, and faith in thee and in the future of this their precious land.
May freedoms be protected and may they strengthen their resolve to live responsibly and to thy glory, we pray in the name of thy holy son, even Jesus Christ. Amen.
Pray For Peace
