From the office of Senator Jon-Anders Jackson of Maryland, a prayer for our nation.
”Oh Lord, thank you for your many blessings we see everyday, in our lives, in our nation, and in our world. Thank you for this nation, this United States, and freedoms and liberties and rights that you have allowed us to maintain. Lord, these are troubled times, we pray that you continue to be with us as individuals, as families, as communities, and as a country. We pray that you continue to strengthen our unity as a people and that your wisdom and light will reach every corner, from Guam to Maine, from Alaska to Puerto Rico, from the Chespeake Bay to the San Francisco Bay — let us all remember that we are a beautifully diverse and spirited people, united in community with one another. We ask this in Your Name. Amen.”
