Prayer Offered for April 22, 2024

Honorable State Senators, from the headquarters of the Western Diocese of the Armenian Church of North America, we greet you with wholehearted and sincerest wishes and come before you as religious servants and sons and daughters of a nation of survivors, a nation which champions democracy, promotes regional stability, peace, and prosperity. We commend your dedication and zealous spirit with which you serve the citizens of the great State of California. In the Holy Bible, we are instructed to pray for our leaders. It is with this great regard that we heed to this calling. Let us all bow our heads in prayer.

Almighty God, we come before You, beseeching Your divine love, mercy, and peace. Bless the members of the California State Senate. Grant them peace, love, and wisdom to serve their constituents with unrelenting dedication and enduring affection. May humility and graciousness guide them as they face various challenges associated with their service in order that they may embrace kindness, compassion, and justice.—AMEN.
