Lord,

There’s a huge divide in our nation right now. The feelings are so intense, deep and passionate that the chasms are innumerable and seem insurmountable. It breaks my heart. And then it hits me. It must break Your heart more than I can ever begin to imagine.

That’s why I am praying with everything I’ve got for You to send Your love to me so I can do what I so often feel incapable of doing. Lead with Your love in everything I think, feel, say and do, walk a mile in others’ shoes and go to work.

Until Your will is as real on earth as it already is in heaven.

So children can walk the streets safely.

There’s no need to carry guns.

No one dies from hunger.

And hatred is erased from human hearts.

Hear my imperfect prayer, Lord, in in the perfect name of Jesus’.

Amen.
