Father, today I pray for our country, this country that I truly love. I pray that you open our eyes so that we can clearly see the destructive and divided path we are now traveling. I pray that you open our minds, so we may see a new path. A path that leads to peace, understanding and respect for all. I pray that you open our hearts, so that we not only feel our pain but feel the pain, the sorrow and hopelessness of others. And Father I pray that you open our hands, so we may freely give and receive all of your blessings.
