Lord of All, we are grateful
that our government
is functioning again.
It’s amazing that the people
we elect can be so cavalier
about the needs of the public.
We rely on our senators
and representatives
to be public servants.
Lord, help us to elect
those who are interested
in the good of all, not just the few.
Raise up statesmen, Lord,
who will look beyond
their own interests
to the good of all.
We ask in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Isaiah: 9:6-7:
For a child has been born for us, a son given to us; authority rests upon his shoulders; and he is named Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. His authority shall grow continually, and there shall be endless peace for the throne of David and his kingdom. He will establish and uphold it with justice and with righteousness from this time onward and forevermore.

Hymn: America the Beautiful
