a Prayer for the New President

Hear Our Voice

May God Bless and Keep the President
A prayer compiled from Facebook comments by Alden Solovy, January 2017

May God bless and keep the President from …
… turning his back on refugees.
… abandoning minorities, the poor, and the disabled.
… alienating our allies and empowering despots.
… destroying LGBTQ rights.
… telling women how to control their lives and their bodies.
… destroying our country.
… irreparably damaging the Supreme Court.
… abandoning the tired, the poor, the huddled masses yearning to breathe free.
… forgetting the truths that are self-evident.
… speaking then denying then speaking then denying.
… establishing a national religion, abandoning the separation of church and state.
… inciting even more racism, anti-Semitism, and misogyny.
… mocking the disabled, attacking Gold Star families, and denigrating women.
… disemboweling the Fourth Estate.
… unleashing sinat hinam.
… undoing this grand experiment in recognizing inalienable rights.
… being re-elected.

May God bless and keep the President …
… occupied with trivial matters to limit his impact.
… aware of all the communities he was elected to serve.

May God bless and keep the President away from…
… Obamacare.
… Twitter.
… the nuclear launch codes.
… Medicare and Social Security.
… the White House.
… acting on his misogynistic impulses.

May God bless and teach the President…
… humility, justice, and kindness.
… to keep his oath to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States.
… to build bridges of kindness and trust between all the peoples of the United States.
… to build bridges of kindness and trust between all the peoples of the world.
… the true meaning of compassion and human dignity.
… to see his inadequacies and his inappropriateness for the job.
… the difference between leading the nation and humiliating dissenters.

May God bless and save the President from himself, and save us from him.
