God Bless President Biden
As the waters of the river run to the sea,
and clouds pour life-giving water on dry earth,
so too, may your blessing, O God, spill onto Joe Biden
the 46th President.
As hate knows love is the cure,
and darkness yields to the power of light,
this nation celebrates the inauguration of Joe Biden,
the 46th President.
Protect, guide and lead him, Sovereign One,
during these treacherous times.
May every word spoken and decision made,
heal and restore this broken, divided nation.
We call upon your angels, O God,
to surround President Biden.
There is sacred work before him
to unite us under one flag, one God.
Good and Gracious God,
Bless our 46th President
Bless him with all he will need
to do your work.
In Christ’s name, we pray. Amen.

January 24 – Participate in the Sunday Worship prayer.
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace. Where there is hatred, let me sow love; Where there is error, truth; Where there is injury, pardon; Where there is doubt, faith; Where there is despair, hope; Where there is darkness, light; And where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek To be consoled as to console; To be understood as to understand; To be loved as to love. For it is in giving that we receive; It is in pardoning that we are pardoned; It is in self-forgetting that we find; And it is in dying to ourselves that we are born to eternal life. Amen.
A Wing and a Prayer
Under the wing of an angel, we feel protected Through prayers to God, we feel connected.
Peace is said to be offered on the wings of a dove Prayers can bring peace along with hope, faith, and love.
Wings of a jet plane provide steady flight I pray you remain steady and strong through this fight.
Butterflies have wings to fly playfully free And free for God’s work is what I pray you’ll soon be.
Birds spread their wings as they may leave their nest We’re spreading our prayers that you’ll always be blessed
Go fight and win this battle you didn’t start On the wings of an angel and prayers from my heart
