Prayer for a Presidential Election Year

God of justice and compassion,
God of Republicans and Democrats and Independents,
God of the poor and the 1% and the middle class,
in the heat of this election year
we pray for our nation, our churches, and ourselves.
In the midst of meanness and deception,
may our words be kind and true.
In the midst of loud speeches and harsh accusations,
may we listen well and try to understand.
May those who follow Jesus do the work of Jesus–
breaking down the dividing walls
speaking the truth in love
meeting together in the face of disagreements.
Holy, loving God,
have mercy on your children.
Amen.

    Your site does not provide a clear (to me) way to unsubscribe, which i wish to do at this time
    I have found your newsletter generally interesting; however I am downsizing on the newsletters I receive. Thank you for the comprehensive material that I have received through this subscription.

      Tony, I cannot remove people from the subscription list. There should be a link at the bottom of the emails you receive that will allow you to do this.

      I am glad you find my material helpful for a time, and hope you come back to visit occasionally.
