Prayer for April 8. Please pray with me. God of wisdom, today we pray for our elected leaders – both those we like and those we do not like. Just as you gave wisdom to Solomon to rule the people of Israel, we ask that you give our modern day elected leaders wisdom to do what is best for all peoples under their rule. We ask that elected leaders listen, discern the best approach, act with justice and grace, speak with integrity and vision, and hold the people they lead ever within their thoughts. Amen.
