“If my people who are called by my name humble themselves, pray, seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”
—2 Chronicles 7:14

These are anxious times as our nation confronts a deadly pandemic, a troubled economy, racial injustice and a bitter election season. It’s a lot to take in, and it’s easy to get overwhelmed.

That’s why prayer is needed now more than ever.

As we celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Cathedral Center for Prayer and Pilgrimage, we hope these 25 prayers will help calm your soul and lift your spirit as we head into Election Day and the months to come. Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

Day 1

But I have calmed and quieted my soul, like a weaned child with its mother; my soul is like the weaned child that is with me. —Psalm 131:2

God of our troubled hearts, God of our quiet souls:

We know the first step towards making peace in our world is to find peace in ourselves; but as we begin these twenty-five days of prayer, there is so much dis-ease in our world that it can be difficult to find such peace. Grant us the assurance of your steadfast embrace, no matter the condition of our spirits, so we may rest in the deep peace that comes from knowing we are your beloved children. Amen.
