A Prayer

Now that the polls have closed, open our hearts.
Now that the election has ended, let this be a new beginning
Grant us equanimity to live with the legal outcomes and a hope for peaceful transitions.
We are tired, spent, anxious.
Remind us that our real hope lies in You, God.
And in Your call to treat every person knowing
They hold in themselves the Divine image.
May the winners and losers find the fortitude to accept
All the legal outcomes; may they reach across the aisle
To foster laws and policies that can best enable peace and health in every State of the Union.
May the next administration dedicate itself to policies
Of Peace and Understanding between all people
With no place for baseless hatred.
Help us join together as one nation,
Neither red nor blue, but American together
Dedicated to the promise of peace, liberty, and freedom
That is the founding promise of our nation.
Help we pray this election to pass without violence
And remind us that we are all brothers and sisters, children of Adam and Eve.
So may it be Your will
