Peanut Gallery: The Inauguration of Donald J Trump as the 45th President of the United States of America is only 4 days away. Please pray for Unity in America.
The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association has provided five excerpts from the Inaugural Prayers of Billy Graham and Franklin Graham. The second of these five excerpts is provided here as an example of how you can pray – today – for Unity in America.
For Unity in America:
We pray, O Lord, for President-elect [Donald J. Trump] and Vice President-elect [Michael R. Pence], to whom You have entrusted leadership of this nation at this moment in history. We pray that You’ll help them bring our country together so that we may rise above partisan politics and seek the larger vision of Your will for our nation.
Use them to bring reconciliation between the races, healing to political wounds, that we may truly become one nation under God. Give our new president, and all who advise him, calmness in the face of storms, encouragement in the face of frustration, and humility in the face of success. Give them the wisdom to know and to do what is right, and the courage to say no to all that is contrary to Your statutes of holy law. — Franklin Graham, 2001 inaugural prayer
