Prayer in Thanksgiving in the Aftermath of the Presidential Election

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops suggested a prayer in thanksgiving after the recent presidential election. Seems like a good idea as we often petition the Lord for so many things and might forget to say ‘Thank You!’

God of all nations,
Father of the human family,
we give you thanks for the freedom we exercise
and the many blessings of democracy we enjoy
in these United States of America.
We ask for your protection and guidance
for all who devote themselves to the common good,
working for justice and peace at home and around the world.
We lift up all our duly elected leaders and public servants,
those who will serve us as president, as legislators and judges,
those in the military and law enforcement.
Heal us from our differences and unite us, O Lord,
with a common purpose, dedication, and commitment to achieve liberty and justice
in the years ahead for all people,
and especially those who are most vulnerable in our midst

Amen.

    • Now, we just have to get the rioting snowflakes under control. How stupid to protest a Democratic election? You have to wonder if THEY even voted or worked any of the campaigns or are just having a tantrum because the majority of the vote didn’t agree with them. How very children and two year old of them.

      We had such an honor at our voting place. A small platoon of high school ROTC in fatigues uniform lined the entrance/exit we had to walk through. I told the ‘real’ soldier in charge that he had a great-looking troop here and he said, “Thank you and I KNOW that!” Nice touch to the day.
