May 1st was the National Day of Prayer in our country and I’m afraid that many Americans didn’t even know it. For some reason the media largely ignored it. At a time when our nation is at war – our economy in shambles – and millions living in poverty – it’s most difficult to understand how prayer for the country and its people could be seen as unimportant. We should be relying on God during such times to help us put things in order. If you have not seen it, the prayer given for our nation on May 1st is certainly worth reading. For that reason, I am setting out this powerful prayer below which was meant as a blessing for all of us.
Holy Father, in a world where so many are hungry,
You have given us food in abundance;
In a world where so many are hurting,
You offer to bind up our wounds;
In a world where so many are lonely,
You offer friendship to every heart;
In a world longing for peace,
You offer hope.
Yet, we are so stubborn and resistant.
Have mercy upon us, Lord.
Our nation is at a crossroads this year;
we look to you to be our strength and shield.
Please give us the guidance to elect one who will honor you
and to respond to the wisdom from above
so that our hope may be renewed and our blessings be treasured.
In God’s holy name.

With all of the problems facing our nation, it’s hard to imagine that national prayer would take second fiddle to politics, sports, crime reporting, and the like. Not only is a prayer for our nation important, it’s a necessity in today’s world.
