A Prayer for the Election
Healer of Our Every Ill,
Breathe in and among all of us who dwell in this land.
Soothe our wounds.
Calm our fears.
Mend our divisions.
Hope of All Tomorrows,
Open our deaf ears and fill us with Compassion.
Tender our hearts.
Inspire creative ideas to address the cries of our sisters, brothers & Earth itself.
Send forth your Spirit of Love and Unity,
Transform pointed fingers into hands open in reverence to receive one another.
Fan into flame the gift of our founding
And let us be known again as a people United for the goodness, justice and peace of all
people forever. Amen.
