Sister Joy D. Jones Prayer at the White House

Jones Prayer
This prayer was given by Sister Joy D. JonesPrimary general president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, during the National Day of Prayer at the White House in Washington, D.C., Thursday May 2, 2019.

 

O God, our Eternal Father, we approach Thee today in humble prayer.

At our nation’s founding, its leaders sought Thee. During war and peace, in prosperity and poverty, we pled for Thy providential care. And Thou hast continually answered our supplications in godly wisdom.

On this National Day of Prayer, we express our gratitude for Thy goodness and mercy. We thank Thee for the freedoms we enjoy. We acknowledge our accountability to Thee, and to each other, for how we exercise those freedoms.

At this time, Father, we pray for our public servants. We pray for the leaders of this nation. Bless them, protect them and grant them wisdom. Magnify their efforts as they seek to live up to the holy charge of their vocation. We ask for Thy watchcare over those in uniform. Please bless their spouses, their children and their loved ones. Bless them for the sacrifices they make on our behalf.

Father, we pray for the religious leaders of this land. Grant them the strength to shepherd their flocks in Thy word. Inspire our citizenry. Strengthen the families and communities of the United States of America.

Please help us to unite as one nation under God.

We give thanks for the infinite grace of Thy Son Jesus Christ. May we draw on His example and strength as we seek to lift Thy children, to care for the widows and the wounded, and to serve the poor of both purse and spirit.

Father, in these times of heightened complexities and opportunities, we plead for Thy continued guidance and forbearance. We commit to love with more righteousness and to live with greater moral rectitude.

Thou hast always inclined Thine ear to our nation’s petitions, and we are forever grateful. We offer this prayer in that same spirit of gratitude and reverence, and we do so in the sacred name of Thy Holy Son, Jesus Christ. Amen.

On Saturday, I had a very uplifting evening listening to the words of inspired #LDSchurch leaders. I decided to make a little something with my favorite quotes from the #WomensMeeting in preparation for #ldsconf and I will be sharing them through the week. I hope they can bring some inspiration to your life as well, and if they do, you are welcome to share! This quote right here just makes me feel grateful for everything we have to go through during this life because, as hard as the trials ...
