Moving Forward In Hope

Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us. Romans 5:3-5.

Lord as our new president takes office, a president who promises change and emphasizes community, let us move forward in hope:

Hope that we can be wise, and find a path forward through our troubled times;

Hope that our people can find jobs that put their talents and skills to good use;

Hope that we can care for each other enough to find resources to share and rebuild our communities;

Hope that we can be good stewards of our lands and preserve the natural beauty of your creation for future generations;

Hope that we can heal our partisan and racial divides;

Hope for the safe return of those serving overseas in defense of our country.

Lord please protect our leaders from harm, guide them in the paths of wisdom, help them to do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with you, as they take their oaths of office, and become the guardians of our common welfare.

Amen.
