Today’s “A Prayer for a Leader” (UCC devotional) spurs nice reminders from Psalm 72 regarding justice, compassion and peace. May those characteristics emanate from all our leaders in the coming years!
This is the prayer at the end of the devotional:
God of all nations, as the Psalm affirms, give our leaders—and us—your justice, your compassion for the poor, and your passion for peace. Amen.
Perhaps this is a prayer to be said today and in the days ahead?
May we all – fueled by the Spirit – seek justice, show compassion and pursue peace!
