Father God, our nation is hurting! We need the Holy Spirit to cover us in comfort, compassion, and forgiveness. Our nation is divided. Open our hearts and minds to your plan, and not our own. May we be ever mindful of others' opinions and see them through your eyes. Father, this is not a surprise to you. We need to rest in you, have faith in you, and know that your mercy and grace cover us, even now. May our hearts be open to each other, and most especially to you. Amen.
