The election is over but our prayer continues.
We pray for the United States of America, especially for healing of the many divisions that threaten to overcome the nation.
We pray for the elected officials and for the future with this prayer from the U.S. Bishops entitled “Prayer After an Election.”
God of all nations, Father of the human family, we give you thanks for the freedom we exercise and the many blessings of democracy that is enjoyed in the United States of America.
We ask for your protection and guidance for all who devote themselves to the common good, working for justice and peace at home and around the world. We lift up all the duly elected leaders and public servants, those who will serve the nation as president, as legislators and judges, those in the military and law enforcement. Heal all from the differences and unite all, O Lord, with a common purpose, dedication, and commitment to achieve liberty and justice in the years ahead for all people, and especially those who are most vulnerable in our midst. Amen
