Prayer for November 14: Please pray with me. God of wisdom, we pray that you would grant our newly elected officials wisdom, patience, and mercy. We need these things in our leaders Lord so they can be a calm presence in the midst of an anxious people. Turn us from adding to the anxiety that surrounds us Lord. May your Spirit speak through our mouths and in our posts – and let us communicate your love, peace, mercy, and patience. Amen.
