Instead of espousing some partisan rhetoric, I have prayer that will pray and embody until the dysfunction of government ceases and both parties can compromise in order to accomplish the people's business.
God, please watch over the hard working people of the United States that are working harder than ever but have less and less to show for it. Please watch over the single mom (that pays more in federal taxes than the wealthiest 1% of people in this country) that works multiple jobs and has little to no rest because the 114th Congress will not look out for her interest.

Please watch over the millions of people that now have healthcare (because of the Affordable Care Act), as the 114th Congress will surely try to repeal a law that has saved lives and reduced the cost of healthcare in this country more than any other time in its history. Please watch over low-income seniors that rely on the promise of Medicare and the new healthcare law for affordable medications and preventative care.
God watch over the millions of minimum wage workers in the United States that have to work two or three jobs and double digit hours in order to make ends meet, because contrary to GOP sentiments, young people aren't the only people that work for the minimum wage. #725IsNotALivableWage
God please watch over the undocumented people, young and old, that have come to this country looking for opportunities to earn a livable wage, earn an education and maximize their God given potential.
God, please bless and watch over our Earth. The incoming party in control doesn't believe in clean water, smog or climate control. They don't believe that companies shouldn't be allowed to dump toxic into our water and pollute our skies.
Please protect our food sources as surely poisonous food companies like Tyson and Monsanto will cozy up to the GOP and push legislation that will continues to toxify our food and perpetuate the illnesses that have plagued our country (like cancer, obesity, etc.)
Please God, give the GOP new ideas and give them a vision that will move America forward, not backward. Empower them to consider the interest of the people that aren't millionaires and billionaires. Please allow them to have mercy on the disadvantaged and marginalized people of this country. I know this prayer is a long shot, but I shall believe in your divine order and hope for the best in these next two years.
