A prayer for the world

Almighty God,
We thank you for the gift of all the continents of the world;
Thank you for the different people
And different races;
We pray for all people
Of the world,
Especially the people
Of America;
This great country
That is facing trying times
Like many other countries;
Injustice, and racial discrimination are having their toll on them;
We have seen violent demonstrations
Which have placed the country in very bad shape;
And people have lost their lives;
Insecurity is rife;
We pray you O Lord,
To help this country;
We commit her poor leadership into your hands;
Grant them the wisdom
To be just,
To get rid of racial discrimination;
To inspire her leader to rule with love and fairness;
The corona virus pandemic
Has not spared this country;
Thousands have been infected;
And the statistics keep rising;
Many have already died;
Many more are expected to die;
You alone have the solution to this problem;
We pray O Lord that you save the people of America from this deadly disease.
We pray for our brothers and sisters in this country;
They are facing tough times
Because of the incompetent leader the country has;
They have an important election coming up;
They will be going to the polls;
They will be voting
To choose someone
To lead them for the next four years;
We know the two candidates
Contesting for this position;
Father, you know everything;
You know the one that is better
Than the other;
You know the danger
That one poses;
You know the trouble
That this country is passing through;
For four years, she has had the poorest leadership in her history;
We pray you to give them a leader who will save the country from going deeper into trouble.
Because what happens here affects other countries;
As we pray for them,
We also pray for all other countries;
We oray for all people
Who are suffering from bad leadership;
Remove bad leaders from power;
And put good ones who will rule according to your will;
Save the world
From covid 19;
We also pray for ourselves;
Our problems are many;
We pray you to help us overcome them;
They are many and more than us;
But with you, nothing is difficult;
Only say the word and we will have what is good for us;
Wipe our tears;
Make us stop crying;
Remove greedy people from power
Wherever you find them;
Make truth and justice prevail;
Put an end to hunger,
All the trouble caused by poverty and greed;
Wipe out evil and let good reign;
We make our prayer through Christ our Lord,
Amen!

  1. Thank you.

    Presidential speeches get taken seriously and remembered. It is the best form of communication between the leader of the highest office and the citizens. Presidential speeches are usually carefully drafted with help from advisors and sometimes speechwriters to deliver a clear, concise message.

    The president’s Independence Day speech from Mount Rushmore left me in a low mood. I felt somewhat depressed afterward.

    I have served in the United States Armed Forces and always considered myself to be a good citizen. The president’s speech left me feeling as if I might be a traitor to my country and my fellow citizens.

    I am a Democrat and do not agree with all of his ideas but remain open to debate if this is still a democracy.

    Let us all hope his next executive order is not to send Democrats to re-education camps.
