A Prayer for Our Nation, Our World, and Our Hearts

Hands in PrayerO Father, as I stop and think about our country today, all the hurt and pain and the way we so often break your heart, I quickly become overwhelmed by it all. And then in the stillness, I stop and I fix my hope and gaze upon you, the Lord and Lifter of my head.
