After the passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, our nation now embarks on the process of nominating and confirming a new Justice to the Court. We invite you to join in this prayer below for wisdom and guidance as our President and the US Senate carry out this process, and as all our fellow citizens undertake their role in communicating with their Senators and also in casting their vote in the elections.

Prayer as our Nation Replaces a Supreme Court Justice
God our Father, your Son Jesus spoke to us a message
of peace and taught us to live as brothers and sisters.
His message took form in the vision of our
Founding Fathers, as they fashioned a nation where all people might live as one.
This message lives on in our midst as a task for us today
and a promise for tomorrow.
We thank you, Father, for your blessings in the past,
and for all that, with your help, we must yet achieve.
Bless our nation as we engage in this process of transition on the Supreme Court.
Bless our President, who has carried out his duty to choose a qualified nominee.
Bless and protect the nominee, Judge Amy Coney Barrett, and her family.
Give her wisdom and strength as she undertakes this confirmation process,
and as she continues to serve you and this great country.
Give wisdom, insight and courage to the leaders of the United States Senate,
And to all our Senators,
that they may carry out their duty
To conduct a fair confirmation process
Based on the qualifications of the nominee.
And bless our fellow citizens, that they may understand the proper role of the courts
And let their voices be heard
In defense of the principles our Founding Fathers invoked.
Bring all of us to the day when our laws and our courts
Protect the rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness,
And recognize that those rights are not given to us by kings or courts,
But only by you, the Lord of every nation.
We pray through Christ our Lord. Amen.
