(Hold your candle and pray)

Holy Healer of Many Names,
Yahweh, Allah, Divine Providence,
Wisdom-Sophia, Great Spirit, Giant Unifier,
May your power and grace sustain us during and after this election.
We need healing in our nations.
Response: In your mercy, grant us healing.

Eternal Holy One of our ancestors Sarah, Hagar, Abraham,
Mother of our daughters and our sons,
Ease our fears, surround us with community,
Keep alive within us a world where difference is valued.
Response: In your mercy, grant us healing.

Spirit of Peace,
Forgive us for our wars, wounds, hurts, misdeeds, violent acts, and
Our tendency to reduce others to the status of disposable.
Save us from further terrorism and destruction
So that children of all nations may live in peace.
Response: In your mercy, grant us healing.

Holy Wisdom of our mothers, Gaia, Kwan Yin, Brigit, and Pachamama,
Eve, Lilith, Miriam, Mary, Mary of Magdala, and Harriet Tubman,
Mystics, witches, crones, saints, and uppity women,
Wake us up to resist the politics of division and hate.
Wake us up to defend all peoples.
Wake us up to bring compassion, nastiness, and new life into the coldness of empire.
Let your songs of justice and love be heard through us across the lands.
Response: In your mercy, grant us healing.

Guardian of all people,
Help us keep our eyes on the goal of democracy.
Give us courage to address the issues that have been left to fester,
And boldness to model what love and compassion look like.
In a polarized nation in desperate need of healing,
Bring people of all political parties together
That we may work for liberty and justice for all.
Response: In your mercy, grant us healing.

Holy One of Many Names,
Guide the leaders of the United States and its allies;
Soften their hearts to hear the cries of those most in need.
Strengthen them to act responsibly to bring peace and welfare to humankind
So that all may have food, housing, jobs, equity, peace, respect, and dignity.
May our new president-elect lead this nation with compassion,
and unite us beyond bigotry, hatred, and divisions.
Response: In your mercy, grant us healing.

Holy Healer of Many Names,
Yahweh, Allah, Divine Providence,
Wisdom-Sophia, Great Spirit, Giant Unifier,
Bring us together to bridge divides,
To work for healing and justice in our country and around the world
So that all creation may live in peace, forever and ever.
Response: Amen. Ashe. Let it be so.
