This prayer invites us to pray that bonds of community be restored after this tumultuous and divisive election.

Lord, as we end the election cycle

And look ahead to a new administration,

We pray for healing and wholeness for our nation.

Our bonds of community must be repaired and restored.

Our willingness to listen to one another must be strengthened.

Our respect for every member of our society must be revived.

 

We pray for healing and wholeness in our nation.

Guide us to move beyond divisive language,

Guide us to move beyond angry rhetoric,

Guide us to move beyond harsh judgments.

 

We pray for healing and wholeness in our nation.

Let us reject all forms violence,

Let us learn to forgive and reconcile.

Let us model inclusiveness and welcome to all.

 

We pray for healing and wholeness in our nation.

May we move forward with hope,

May we move forward with faith,

May we move forward with compassion and love.

 

As we end the election cycle

And look ahead to a new administration,

We pray for healing and wholeness for our nation.

We pray to be a part of repairing and restoring the bonds of community.

We pray to be willing to listen to one another.

We pray that we may respect every member of our society.

Lord, hear our prayers. Amen.
