Holy Creator, we face uncertain times. How long, O God, until we are free of pandemics that continue to rage? How long, O God, until walls of division crumble and neighbors meet in open places? How long, O God, until election angst calms into just, bipartisan cause?

In this time of uncertainty help us to be certain of our values. Help us to live in ways that reflect your mercy and justice and love for all creation.

In this time of arrogance, power grabs and partisan hard lines, we humble ourselves in prayer. We acknowledge that you are God and we are not. Some who hold high office believe that they are higher than all others, including You. They confuse themselves for You, seeing themselves as god, and lording it over others with heartless ego. We acknowledge that You alone are God, and Your ways are not our ways. Show us the way, and lead us in the ways of justice, mercy, and equality.

We pray that beyond the outcomes of elections, we would work daily to ensure that all have what they need in body, mind and spirit.

We pray for the day when health care is accessible to all, when education is truly equal, when the justice system is truly just, when air and water is clean, when nourishing food is abundant, not just for the rich, but for all.

We pray for the unhoused, that they may receive safe shelter
and that this land may be a true home. We pray that we would fully value each other and that anti-racism would be supreme, breaking through caste
as we proclaim BLACK LIVES MATTER.

We turn to you in faith and hope, praying for the day when Your love is above all. And so it is. Amen.

By Faith, Rev. Elder Dwayne
