God, I come to you today in complete shock. A year and a half ago it all seemed like a joke. The idea of Trump as president seemed ridiculous. What could he possibly know about leading a country?
And yet here we are. The day when all this craziness becomes reality for this country.
Many people say that this is crazy that our world has come to this point. I believe that these feelings at the heart of these issues have only been suppressed and are now bubbling back to the surface.
Abba, I give this day to you.
Keep the people from all around the world in Washington DC safe. Let their fear not turn into anger, hatred, and violent acts.
Father, keep Trump safe. You are putting Trump in power for a reason. Keep reminding him of the immensity of the position he is stepping into. Use him to shine a light on the reality of our divided country. Help him use his power wisely to better this nation.
God, help the United States not lose hope. Continue to spread the message of hope and acceptance. Let this message be what makes America great. Help us see that your law is far greater than any law one man could make. Your love never has and never will fail us. Light a fire in our hearts to stand by our hurting and oppressed brothers and sisters. Let your justice rise.
