Prayer for America
by Debbie Loesel Stanton
In you we trust
Even when horrific events happen.
We do not understand
why the Tormentor has been able to win
but we know someday the tides will turn.
You will be able to send Evil back to where it belongs.
I pray peace upon this nation
that you have given us
and ask for your help
so America can indeed be
The Land of the Free and Home of the Brave.
I pray for the families of those lost in the 9/11 tragedy,
that even now when their hearts are still hurting
they will be able to find peace – and You.
Protect us from our enemies and
bring us to repentance as well,
so America can be the gift to us
that you meant it to be.
Help us to put away all strife, envy, bitterness, evil and greed
that threaten to undo us with every passing day.
God, in you we trust.
