Prayer for the Rosenberg City Council Meeting on Election Day 2014

Holy One!

This is the day that you call us to cast our votes.
You don’t care whether we are Republican, Democrat, Libertarian, Green, Independent, affiliated with another political party or no party at all.
You do care however that we engage in the process, that we remain faithful stewards of your creation and all your beloved people in the city of Rosenberg, in Fort Bend County, in the State of Texas, in the United States and all over your world. Help us elect faithful servants so that our communities can be shaped after your heavenly kingdom that we long for.

Tonight I pray for our city council that you may guide them in this meeting to work towards a city that may become more and more of a reflection of the heavenly Jerusalem where all your children are invited to the feast, no matter who they are or where they are on life’s journey, where liberty and justice are upheld for all. Bless our council to make sure that the alien, the orphan and the widow are better off because of what the council does tonight and every day.

Tonight I pray for all the people that they may be worthy citizens of their communities and do their part of holding elected officials accountable or become involved themselves. As our city develops a new comprehensive plan give more and more people the courage to step forward and make their voices heard. You bless Rosenberg with an abundance of growth, now also bless these our council members with the vision and authority to guide and manage the future development of our city so that it may create more blessings for the least of these.

Amen.
