Humility and Peace

January 31, 2021

Lord, we know you are a forgiving God, gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in love. (Nehemiah 9:17).

Stick with us, and guide us Lord, despite our quarrelsome ways.

Give us the humility to seek out different points of view, to find the wisdom in others. (Proverbs 15:22)

Turn us from those who feed hate and fear and resentment, and towards those who are willing to come together, reason together, and find a path forward together.

Help us to be both merciful and just, ensuring the accountability necessary to protect our future.

Put us on the path of a peace founded on empathy, equality and good governance, for we know this brings both joy and prosperity.

Help us to repent, to learn from our sins, and to be better than we are.

Amen
