Today, our Executive Director Rey Diaz offers up a special prayer for the United States and its leaders. It is a beautiful reminder of our hope and our purpose - and the beauty of being adopted into the most majestic of forever families.Our Father, who continues to reign in heaven,In obedience to Your word (1 Tim 2:1-2), we are lifting up our future leaders and our government to You. Today, we will be electing a new United States president, along with many other offices. Many of us will also be voting on new laws that impact our communities.Please guide us. Direct us. Holy Spirit, lead us.No matter who is elected, we commit to pray for them. I beg You to give them wisdom beyond their understanding. Give them courage to choose the right path even when it’s not the easiest path. Give them the character necessary to lead our country.We give to Caesar what is his, but to You we will give what belongs to You (Mark 12:17). As Your children, created in Your image, we commit our allegiance to You once again. You are LORD of all, transcending political parties. You are King Jesus and we pray for Your kingdom to come on earth as it is in Heaven (Matthew 6:10). We wont allow politics, or race, or class, or country to divide us.Thank You for our country. Thank You for the privilege to vote. But most of all, thank You for Your victory and our adoption into Your family. We await the day when every nation, tribe, and tongue, will gather and worship You (Revelation 7:9). We await the day when there will be no more pain or sorrow or tears (Revelation 21:4), when there will be no more orphans nor widows - when all Your children will come home.We pray in the powerful name of Jesus Christ.
