Noonday Prayer: Our Nation is Us vs. Them



Americans are as divided as they were before the Civil War. At least that’s the analysis of some cultural critics. But even if that isn’t true the principalities and powers at work dividing us seem to be in every sector of society. Nowhere is this more true than in our political discourse. And a key feature of this division is demonizing the opposition. We no longer have the ability to listen to our enemies, let alone love them.

PRAYER: Father, we are not perfect. We love our friends and hate our enemies. Lord, only the gospel and the Spirit of Christ can overcome this. We pray then that you would break the principalities and powers that create division and hatred in our community. We pray that you would call out your people for repentance, that they would confess their sins and turn back to your ways. Shape us in the image of Jesus, O God.
