Prayer for June 30: Please pray with me. God of the nations, today we pray to you – the true God. Help us to see that you are God, and that all human-made things are not. Help us to see that often you and your will differ from our nations and cultures, our leaders and politicians, our interactions and designations of friend and foe – and you have been far different from all of these things for many generations. You aren’t a god of one party or the other, of this nation or that one, but as you tell us in Galatians 3:28 – “There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, not is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.” Amen.
Prayer for January 20: Please pray with me. God of the nations, today we pray for the United States. We pray for our new President and all new government officials. We pray that our government officials would seek peace, listen to wisdom, and create an environment were all can thrive. Remind us that no matter how powerful a government or leader may be, they are ultimately servants. Remind our officials that no matter what their rank or authority, they are not our savior or salvation – only you are. Open our eyes to see past the labels and identities we give ourselves – political party, nationality, etc. Instead, help us to see ourselves and others as you see us – Children of God. Amen.
Prayer for October 21: Please pray with me. God who leads us, today we pray a simple prayer – You are our salvation, not any person, system of government, political party, ideology, or other human-made thing. Only you. May we rest secure in this and help us to trust that you keep your promises. Amen.
