Bishop Joshua K. Lynn, Mastin Lake Church of God of Prophecy,
Huntsville, Alabama, offered the following prayer:
Holy Father, You are the almighty, all-knowing creator. We submit to
Your infinite wisdom.
On behalf of our Nation and these leaders, we seek Your forgiveness
for placing other ways higher than Yours. Grant us Your amazing grace
from our sin as we turn to You. Open the ears of this body, this
Nation's leaders, and all who call this great land home to hear Your
voice. Tenderize the soil of our hearts so we may receive Your
Heal our land of bitterness, hate, and evil against You and one
another. Grant our Nation a spiritual renewal and awakening.
Give this Nation and its leaders wisdom today and the days that
follow. As we follow You, let Your favor be with us.
Let Your name ring higher than any other name. For it is in Your
holy, loving, merciful, and gracious name we pray.
In Jesus' name, amen.
