We do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us. – Romans 8:26
Heavenly Father, You are so good. You know how frail we are, but You never leave us without provision. Your gift to us of coming before Your presence in prayer is the stress reducer we all need right now. Restore peace to our hearts and minds. Restore a sense of calmness across America, according to Your will, we pray. Give that same peace to those who will be the ones to lead us over the coming years, for You are the God of All Peace.

“And when you pray, you must not be like the hypocrites. For they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and at the street corners, that they may be seen by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward. 6 But when you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.
7 “And when you pray, do not heap up empty phrases as the Gentiles do, for they think that they will be heard for their many words. 8 Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him. 9 Pray then like this:
“Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name.
10 Your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread,
12 and forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
Lifting our elections up to the Lord helps all of us keep the focus on the most important topics as well as softens our hearts to love everyone, even those with whom we may disagree. Believing differently shouldn't stop us from sharing God's love and His Word with others.
“By yourself you're unprotected. With a friend you can face the worst. Can you round up a third? A three-stranded rope isn't easily snapped.”

“Educate and inform the whole mass of the people... They are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our liberty.”
