A Prayer

God of justice and mercy
In your son you warned that a house divided against itself would fall
Look with grace upon this country.
Bring wisdom in the face of haste and humility in the context of dispute.
At this time of division and anxiety
Show your people a true way,
a deep truth and an abundant life;
that in years to come we might look back on these moments
and say this is when we truly understood who we are.
