God of time and space,
on this day after an election;
there are those who grieve their loss
and those who ride high on their victories.
For some their disappointment goes deep
into their minds, their hearts and their spirits.
Others make plans as to how to move ahead
with their agendas and plans.
Remind us, O God of the ages,
that there is more to this life
than one candidate or one political party.
Help your children look to you
that they might walk in the ways of justice,
that they might speak the words of peace and grace
that they might live lives of love.
Whisper your words of hope into the
hearts of all who love you.
Help us remember that you are the One
who holds the future and calls us to
live into that future unafraid.
