A Prayer for Tuesday, November 22, 2016

Thanksgiving (Pt. 2)

O God,

Thank you!

Thank you for our nation. Thank you that, ever since our government began operating under the Constitution in 1789, we’ve been growing toward believing in and practicing equal rights and justice for all.

The path hasn’t been and isn’t always straight and smooth. Sometimes we take two steps forward and one step back. Still, we thank you that we have continued to move forward, and we pray that we will continue to do so.

Forgive us when we let fear, perceived self-interest, and prejudice block the path forward.

Help those of us who serve you and follow Jesus be inspired by more than Constitutional ideals to seek equal rights and justice for all. Let Christ’s love and grace inspire us to seek what’s best for people in ways that go far beyond what even the Constitution points toward.

Thank you for our nation.
Help us be the best nation we can be.
Help us live up to our highest ideals.
