Heavenly Father, our nation is in crisis.

We pray for your intervention so that going forward there may not be any more deaths, nor unprovoked physical attacks; we pray for positive change in our country going forward that we may all be truly one nation under your banner.

Please protect protestors as well as members of law enforcement as all navigate this night.

We ask for your love and compassion and mercy and grace to drench our land, that we may truly treat all people fairly.

Bind us together with the purity of your love and teach us to extend to everyone the grace and mercy you freely give to us.

May your Holy Spirit fall upon our nation, and may we come to truly be united and be, once again, a beacon for the world.
