Natalia Baykalova, The Hope No. 7, oil on canvas


Loving God, today dawned with overwhelming anxiety and fear for so many. Pandemic cases are on the rise and it feels like the future of the U.S. hangs in the balance. We ask for patience as all the votes are counted, wisdom for those overseeing the ongoing election process, and compassion for ourselves and our neighbors today. Even when the results are in, O God, help us to remember that the fight for justice is not over. It begins anew every morning until that day when you come to make all things new. May your kin-dom come – even here, even now. May we help make it so. In the name of mercy we pray, Amen.


We invite you to spend time in quiet meditation on this image. What do you hope for? Who can you reach out to today?
