Interfaith Day of Prayer
May 7, 2020
Eternal God, source of love, author of justice, fountain of wisdom, hear our prayers for our nation and world. Grant to the President, the Supreme Court, the Congress and all holding authority of government among the nations of the earth wisdom in discernment, justice and compassion in action, and in all things and above all thing love for others above and beyond self interest. Send upon all of us who dwell upon the face of the earth the abundance of your blessing. Where there is hurt and harm, grant your healing, where there is injustice and corruption, establish you justice and honor, where there is hunger, suffering, harm to any child of your give us resolve to respond as people glad to do your will. In all things teach us to love each other as you love each one of us. Help us to place our hands in your hands and in the hands of each other that we may walk together and work together until until our nightmares are ended and your dream for us and all your creation is realized on earth as it is in heaven. This we pray in the name and in the Spirit of Jesus of Nazareth. Amen.
