A Prayer for the Day after an Election

Many thanks to our friends from the Geranium Farm for this prayer:

A Prayer for the Day after an Election

God of all nations, 
Father of the human family,
we give you thanks for the freedom we exercise
and the many blessings of democracy we enjoy
in these United States of America. . . .

We lift up all our duly elected leaders and public servants,
those who will serve us as . . . legislators and judges,
those in the military and law enforcement.
Heal us from our differences and unite us, O Lord,
with a common purpose, dedication, and commitment
to achieve liberty and justice in the years ahead for all people, and especially those who are most vulnerable in our midst.
