I pray for our country in this time, in this delicate time.
I pray we can peacefully agree on ways “to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity.” (credit: US Constitution)
I pray all will hold these truths to be self-evident: that all humans are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. (credit: US Declaration of Independence)
I pray our federal and state governments shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances. (credit: US Bill of Rights)
I pray the rule of law will continue to be upheld as our standard of justice.
I pray hatred and resentment will be replaced by compassion for all and a desire for community.
I pray all people, including those stricken by cancer and other health conditions, will be able to afford good healthcare.
I pray those who came to this country legitimately in search of a better life will not be forced to leave without good reason.
I pray no one will be ridiculed, bullied or threatened because of their disability, ability, appearance, race, gender, creed, religion, ethnicity, or country of origin.
I pray our leaders and citizens will carefully consider the long-term consequences of their actions and words, and will find rational, realistic solutions to the serious and complicated issues facing us.
I pray other nations will see this country as an example of best democratic and diplomatic practices, and a leader worthy of respect and emulation.
I pray one day we can all agree with these sentiments.
Amen. Sending love.

Thank you for sharing this. I hope we can all share peace, loving kindness, and compassion everyday.
Amen to that on this sad day
I pray the same. Since neither of the candidates were my idea of what presidential responsibility needs and our nation deserves, I finally asked God to let the one win who would keep our families and country safe in this troubled world. I know my prayers were answered . . . God works in strange ways but we can be certain that for whatever reasons this was meant to be and we must work hard to unite as a free country and not be manipulated into fighting among ourselves or joining in bigotry and racism.
