This last week I did the invocation for our county. Here is my prayer.
Please bow your heads with me.
I thank you for bringing us here. Thank you for our nation and its freedoms. Thank you for this county and these commissioners and public servants.
For such a time as this, you have brought us together to serve our community. Use our time, talents, and treasures for your honor as our Creator, that our people’s joy may be full.
You have gifted Berrien County with wise, strong, and capable leaders from various backgrounds and perspectives for this season. Give us unity. Help us work for the common good and the betterment of our people. Give us collegiality and respect for one another and our constituents.
You call us to seek wisdom, and you promise to give it when asking for it from you. Give wisdom. We lift the agenda up, our conversations up, and our plans up to you. Help us find solutions that promote peace, safety, and happiness for all.
I pray these things in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, AMEN.
I would love to hear how you would pray for your county. Please comment below.
