Today the Supreme Court of the United States will hear arguments on cases related to gay marriage. Our country is deeply divided on this issue, and this has the potential to be a landmark, and contentious, decision.
I invite you to join me in praying for our Supreme Court Justices today. How should we pray? Perhaps this prayer from the Book of Common prayer will be helpful.
Almighty God, who sits in the throne judging right: We
humbly beseech you to bless the courts of justice and the
magistrates in all this land; and give unto them the spirit of
wisdom and understanding, that they may discern the truth,
and impartially administer the law in the fear of you alone;
through him who shall come to be our Judge, your Son our
Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.
