Morning Prayer

Gracious Father, as I read and hear your Word this day, give me an understanding that will fill my heart and mind for the direction of all my actions, and for the foundation of my faith. I ask today for your creative power to guide our nation’s leaders to make decisions that bring life, joy and peace for the people of our nation and for our relationships with all other nations and people of the world. May your power create life, and freedom, to restore relationships between people for wholeness. In Jesus name, Amen.
