A Post-Election Prayer for America

Presidential Election, Clinton, Trump, Prayer for America, PrayerO God, you have bound us together in a common life. Help us, in the midst of our struggles for justice and truth, to confront one another without hatred or bitterness, and to work together with mutual forbearance and respect. Grant that we may always prove ourselves a people mindful of your favor and glad to do your will. Save us from violence, discord, and confusion; from pride and arrogance, and from every evil way.

We commend this nation to your merciful care, that, being guided by your providence, we may dwell secure in your peace. Grant to our president, Barack, and our president-elect, Donald, wisdom and strength to know and to do your will. Fill them with the love of truth, justice, and righteousness. Make them ever mindful of their calling to serve this people in your fear; that by your grace and guidance they may defend the dignity and liberties of all persons, and lead this nation into becoming one united people. All this we ask through our Lord Jesus Christ who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.

*This prayer is a compilation and adaptation of prayers from the Book of Common Prayer.
