A Prayer for Our Town
Thank You for our town—for all we enjoy as citizens of it.
Bless our mayor, Lord, and help the city manager and each member of the city council as they deal with thorny issues and make tough decisions. Grant them wisdom.
Bless every school administrator, teacher, staff person, and bus driver. May they provide a safe environment conducive to learning.
O God, our town suffers from broken homes and lonely people, lives shattered by alcohol and drugs, pornography and immorality.
Where there is racial tension, may prejudice yield to unity, and peace prevail.
May You bring badly needed revival to this community! May our citizens grow weary of sin and turn to You for healing.
Heal our town, dear Lord. And use us, we pray, as instruments of healing.
In Jesus’ name. Amen.
