Bishop Davenport Offers Prayer for our Nation

date Posted: January 18, 2021

I invite you as disciples of Christ in our Lutheran tribe of the Jesus Movement to stand in prayer always for our country. This week, I especially call us to prayer for our elected officials as they are preparing to attend this historic swearing-in of our country’s leaders. Pray, a blessing on the men and women in the National Guard and law enforcement bracing at state capitols across America who have sworn to protect and serve all people. Petition, a move of the Holy Spirit to transform the hearts and minds of any who would do harm or disrupt the peaceful transfer of power. Send a word of comfort and hope to all our Black, Brown and indigenous siblings who have been traumatized; pray they find comfort, peace and hope in the days ahead. Come, Holy Spirit, come!
