Please join us in a prayer for the new Administration on this Inauguration Day:
Almighty and Sovereign God:
May your Holy Spirit instill in President Joe Biden the values and principles of your kingdom to exercise the sacred trust of administering the nation.
Give President Biden, Vice-President Kamala Harris, his administration, and Congress the ability to honor you by doing what is right, fair, and just for all citizens, especially the poor, hungry, and marginalized.
We ask that all the people in our nation, irrespective of race, gender, ethnicity, or religious faith be treated with dignity.
We pray for healing of all divisions and violence that tear at the fabric of our democracy.
We pray for the wholeness, health, integrity, harmony, and justice of all the citizens of our nation.
Help our nation develop a foreign policy that fosters peace, justice, equality, and freedoms that can advance the development, rights, and privileges of our global neighbors.
Move our nation to provide international leadership in the good stewardship of all the natural resources that you have entrusted to humankind.
Stir your Holy Spirit in our new leadership, not only today but through the next 4 years. We ask this in the name of your Son, Jesus. Amen.
