A prayer for our times, shared by the Bishop of the Sierra Pacific Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America:
Holy Trinity, you show us the splendor of diversity and the beauty of unity in your own divine life. Make us, who come from many nations with many languages, a united people who delight in our many different gifts. Give those whom we have entrusted with authority the Spirit of Wisdom, that there may be peace and justice throughout our land. Amen.
