Prayer for leaders

Lead our leaders, God of wisdom

guide them past the lure of power or self importance

keep their eyes focussed on the wellbeing of all people,

give them courage to tell the truth,

empathy to listen

and enduring compassion for the voiceless.

When the paths of our opinions diverge,

the way seems treacherous or our criticism destructive

then,

for heaven’s sake,

call us all to account, to apology and to compassion

so that together we can be people of hope, truth, kindness and justice.
