Prayer for Presidential Appointees


Lord, we thank you for this special moment
In the history of the United States of America,
As our elected leaders and their teams
Once again work for a peaceful transition of power.

We thank you for those who have been appointed
To serve our nation in the Administration
Of our new President.
And we pray in advance for those who will be appointed
In the days and weeks to come.

Lord, in Your Providence,
You have prepared these fellow citizens from long ago
For the duties that they will accept.

And we know that you never place on us any responsibility
Without giving us every grace we need to fulfill it.

We therefore pray for these appointees.

Unleash the full power of your grace upon them.
Fill them with your peace,
Surround them with your protection,
And make them single-minded in their service 
Of our country
And of your Kingdom.

When they are confused, let your Word be their light.
When they are weary, let your Spirit be their refreshment.
And when they are successful, let your Son be their example,
As one who is humble of heart, even while being God.

And may we, O God,
As lovers of the United States of America,
Stand with and work with these men and women
For the good of this nation and its future.

Give us grace to defend these men and women when they are unjustly criticized,
And to speak honestly to them when they need our witness.
And in all the decisions that are made
And the works that are carried out,
May your holy Name be glorified
And your Kingdom advanced.

We ask all this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
