Father, please shower blessings on my family and friends. Let my hands pick up someone who is down. Let my feet willingly travel down the path you have for me. Let my mouth speak only kind and encouraging words to all I might meet. Open my heart to compassion for others who cannot see you in the day. Let my life be an example of your love and mercy. Grant me the wisdom and strength to make it through this day.
Father I pray for this great country. Open the hearts of its people, Lord. You are in control. I know you will never leave us or forsake us. I claim that promise now.
