A Prayer of Hope: December 2

Let us pray:

God, our Rock,
We pray for stability in this nation that has been tormented with disunity and discontent
Give us all wisdom on how to move forward successfully
Help us to strive to understand others’ perspectives and to find common ground
Give us insight into what will best solve the complex problems we are facing
Help us to negotiate a new path that will be better and brighter than before. Amen

Written by Rev. Traci D. Blackmon, associate general minister, justice and local church ministries
