Prayer for Leaders

by Julien Hammond on November 19th, 2013

Your Worship and members of Edmonton City Council:

My being invited here today gives me the opportunity, in the name of the many member churches that form the Edmonton & District Council of Churches, to congratulate you on your recent election victories.
Our Council has enjoyed a long history of collaboration with the City of Edmonton, most notably through the Office of the City Chaplain and the many activities promoting religious identity and diversity in our city.
We thank you for continuing this tradition and pledge you the support of our members, and of course the cross-section of the Christian population of Edmonton that we represent.
Please join me now in a moment of prayer…
Lord our God,
Look with love on the people of this community and keep them safe.
(In a particular way we join our hearts and minds to the Filipino population of Edmonton, touched in many and various ways by the tragedy affecting so many people and places in the homeland.)
Guide the members of this council, and help them to work together for the good of all.
Bless their plans and deliberations, and bring them to success.
For blessed are you, Lord our God, forever and ever.
