A Governor's Prayer

Heavenly Father,

May your strength support us in our leadership,

May your grace open our hearts and minds,

May the light of your spirit enter our discussions,

May your wisdom inspire our decisions;

May your mercy bring compassion and understanding in to our relationships.

May your forgiveness bring us humility:

And may Christ’s love be at the heart of all we do in His name.
