Lord, my heart is full this day and I am praying for our country divided and filled with angst after this election. I pray that a change for the better is possible and that your Truth may reign once again. That hearts may be changed from stony hearts to those of love and Truth! May we all be filled with a desire to be forever with you in heaven and always be ready to die to self so that you may live and work within us!. Jesus, we trust in you. We take the words of your Gospel to heart this day that we need to always be ready for we know not when. Amen and Hallelujah
creator of mankind and author of peace,
as we are ever mindful of the cost paid for the liberty we possess,
we ask you to bless the members of our armed forces.
Give them courage, hope and strength....
May they ever experience your firm support, gentle love and compassionate healing.
Be their power and protector, leading them from darkness to light.
To you be all glory, honor and praise, now and forever.
