Note from Team LO: We are so glad you’re here! Each Thursday in October we’ll be posting different prayers for our Nation by some of our LO sister ambassadors. Enjoy and meditate on this prayer for peace from LO ambassador, Ally Golden.
We ask for your peace to reign down on our nation. Overwhelm your people with your peace. We are all yearning for a sense and a taste of your peace that transcends all understanding, and we trust in you. Fill our hearts with the kind of grace that you would exemplify if you were here on Earth at this time. Remind us of the grace you so freely offer to us. Fill us with your love, that we are so full we must overflow to those we come in contact with.
We ask you to guide us as individuals, as friends, as families, and as a nation. When we feel overwhelmed with the chaos and confusion, remind us to come back to your word. Remind us that we need not let our hearts be troubled, and we don’t need to be afraid (John 14:27). As we hold on to the hope of You, renew our minds, and fill us with your strength (Isaiah 40:31).
Help us to remember that every single human is your child, even the ones we don’t agree with. Give us your lens to see your children as you see them. Help us to love those who are hard to love.
May we embody the fruits of the spirit (love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self control) in all that we do. In these uncertain times, we grab on to the certainty of you, knowing full and well that you are in control of this world and your children that you love dearly.
Thank you for your unconditional love.
Thank you for your grace. Guide us as we walk in you daily.
