Our Dear Heavenly Father, while we come to You in complete humility, we also come to You with boldness in the authoritative name of Your One and Only Son, Jesus Christ, who is the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world. In Jesus’ name, fill us now with Your Holy Spirit and lead us as we pray in Jesus’ name for America.
We pray for the people of all ethnicities and races in America to come together as one, living in peace and unity together. Oh Lord, because each of us is created in Your image, please give us the courage to stand against all racial and ethnic division, denouncing it as evil and sinful, while simultaneously coming together in unity with all persons knowing this is God’s will for us.
We pray in unity for the security of our nation. We ask You to preserve the United States of America from the forces of evil that are threatening our lives and our future. God, please guard all persons in public and private settings from anyone or anything that desires to harm us or take our lives. Our future is in Your hands.
In the mighty and majestic name of Jesus Christ who is the Only Savior and the Only Hope in this world, we pray. Amen.
Dr. Ronnie Floyd, President, National Day of Prayer Task Force
S. Mary David was in Erie, PA for AIM Board Meeting on September 28th, 2016. The Alliance for International Monasticism connects monastic communities of men and women in the US who follow the Rule of Benedict to 450 Benedictine and Cistercian communities in Africa, Asia, and Latin America.
AIM promotes cooperation and spiritual, educational and financial assistance to monasteries in developing countries and enables them to be centers of life for others.
S. Mary David stated after their first day of meetings, it was the most impressive and best group ever to work with; professional, personal, and fun!
