Opening Prayer for the US Representative Florida District 1 Candidate Debate Forum

Rev. Uriesou T. Brito

Our most gracious God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, there is no other God but You, for you reign over all things in heaven above and in the earth below. We give you thanks for your promises are yes and amen! You sustain life and give life abundantly. You sustain the world and all authority is yours.

You, O God, care for the affairs of men, and you call us to exercise discernment and good judgment. We pray the same for the leaders over us: that they would desire to act justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly before You.

We thank you for the evening before us. We ask that you would grant these candidates the wisdom to articulate their positions. And then grant your people wisdom to choose carefully those who will represent us.

We confess “that there is not one square inch of the entire creation about which Jesus Christ does not cry out, ‘This is mine! This belongs to me!'” And so our prayer is that you would grant that vision for our leaders for righteousness exalts a nation and sin is a reproach to any people.

Do your holy will, O God. Preserve our nation and glorify the Name of your Holy and Righteous Son, our King, Jesus Christ, to whom belongs all power, glory, and dominion forever and ever. Amen.
