Today in the United States is Election Day. As of the writing of this post, over 90 million people had already cast their vote. It is no secret that 2020 has been a year that many of will not soon forget. Bundled into 2020 has been this election. It seems every election has its moments of mud-slinging and name calling. For some reason we do not accept this from children but think it is commonplace for politicians to do so.

Election Day 2020 has captured the attention of so many people. Nerves and tensions are high.

It is my prayer that the healing of the nation will come soon and that tenure of the next President of the United States will be on that focuses on the people, justice, mercy and grace.

No matter the outcome of today (if an answer will be known) we must remember that our alligence is to God and to God’s son Jesus the Christ.

In Christ,

Rev. Evan


Prayer for Election Day 2020

Settle our hearts, O God. Send your Spirit to give us a peace which passes all understanding.
We are thankful for the opportunity to have our voice heard through the act of voting.
Remind us that our allegiance is not a party or a political candidate but you and your son Jesus the Christ.
You have called us to a new way of life, one filled with love and mercy, grace, and peace.
You have called us to serve the needy, feed the hungry, heal the sick, and love those who are deemed unlovable.
Remind us that you O God are bigger than one candidate, bigger than one party, bigger than one state, one nation.
May we be able to come together as followers of Christ around your table of love despite the outcome of Tuesday.
No matter who occupies the White House, you are the ruler of the universe, our guiding light in times of struggle, and the giver of love.
Settle our hearts, O God. Send your Spirit to give us a peace which passes all understanding.
May your justice and love reign now and forevermore.

We offer this prayer in the name of Jesus the Christ, the holy one of God.
Amen.
