Dear Lord: We thank you for the love and grace that you show for us and on this day we especially thank you for the freedom that you have given us. We know that the free will that you have granted us gives us the right to choose our own destiny and we pray that you will guide us to always make the right choices.
This week has been important for us as we have just completed a nationwide election that has the potential to make a great positive impact on the future of this land. Many of us have felt something has been going seriously wrong in our blessed country and choices have been made which could bring great change in the direction that we set for our nation. We ask you to guide our newly elected leaders in charting a course that always keeps us on a path which meets your approval. We further ask that you open their hearts to your Spirit and love so that they may never falter from the task at hand. And further, we ask that you guide those who disagree so that leaders on both sides of issues can come together for the good of the country and with love and respect for you.
Bless us and keep us in the turbulent days ahead, for we know that there are many obstacles in our way and that Satan is always looking for a weak link through which to destroy us. Let us always be strong, always under your Shining Light and always putting your wishes first. We pray this prayer in the name of Jesus Christ, Our Savior, who lived and died so that the rest of us could find Eternity with you. Amen.
