Dear Lord, As we watch the violence and the destruction being used by rioters in America's streets, we come to you due to your love, grace and power to be able to deal with those things that we humans just can't handle effectively. We know your are our King of kings, our Creator and Master and we beseech you to give us the knowledge and strength to deal with this madness properly and effectively in order to end the carnage and bring peace. And we also know that the only way to find real peace is through your truth and that only by taking what we know and giving it to you to help us determine the right approach to return America to a path of freedom for all as One Nation Under God.
First, we ask that you give us the patience and the ability to do our part in standing strong as we find the right path forward for us as individuals, as family members and as citizens of our communities. This course must be centered on your Way which is the only way which can truly work. We need the strength of the entire community coming together regardless of our differences to unite against evil and replace it with good using your grace and truth in accomplishing what needs to be done.
Next, we ask for your guidance to our leaders to make decisions based upon what is good and not due to expediency, for when we pick winners and losers instead of choosing good over evil, we will never get our communities, cities and states back on track. Please help them to open their hearts and put faith in you for determining the final solution, not a solution based upon the weakness of man but upon the strength of you, our Eternal Father. Help them to apply the Laws that you created for us as modified by the love and salvation of Jesus and to be willing to remove hate within us and replace it with good. Yes, those guilty of heinous crimes need to be punished, but for those who learn from their mistakes and truly work the change their ways, we must have the willingness to forgive once the proper and just restitution is made by those who then seek forgiveness.
And Lord, we ask that you guide and protect our law enforcement officers and keep them and their brothers and sisters on the right course and not one that strays from the course of action they are expected to follow. Also be with the family of those who have been hurt or killed, including both the Floyd family as well as those who were adversely impacted by the riots, both in terms of their physical selves and their property which has been destroyed.
Lord, we ask that you let Goodness and Light replace Evil and Darkness in hearts and minds everywhere so that we may come together and stop such insurrections and the forces that drive them and their evil ways. Open hearts to the reality of what needs to be done and cleanse souls so that they might be productive citizens instead of violent perpetrators of things evil. Infect all of our souls and hearts with your Love and keep us close always to your Word and Grace. Amen.
Let's come together once and for all and rid ourselves of hate, fear and all negativity and turn to the Way, the Truth and the Life for all of our needs, America. We can do this and we must if we want a land of peace, rest and productivity for all. Take it to heart, my friends, and have a positive day. Just like the closing caption makes clear, God's love never fails us when we ask Him sincerely.
