Prayer for September 6: Please pray with me. God of the nations, we pray for peace. We pray for leaders of nations – give them wisdom. Make them peacemakers. Let them show grace and mercy towards each other. Push us to call on these leaders to be peacemakers. We have a responsibility in this too. Our leaders are not our saviors Lord. Only you can claim that. Guide nations in how they choose their leaders. Guide people to live lives of meaning and purpose, lives of respect and dignity. Help people to live lives of service. Let us see that following you means setting aside division, anger, fear, and more. Following you isn’t about the strong being best. It’s about favoring the poor. following you means that the how we get to the end matters, not just the ends that matter. Let us live these beliefs and let them impact the world. Amen.
