October 13 – Saint Edward the Confessor

Saint Edward the Confessor

listenBlessed Lord, Saint Edward the Confessor (c.1003-1066) was one of the most popular English kings, because he trusted in You and greatly loved his people.  By relying on You, he was able to rule wisely and maintain peace.  I ask him to pray for world leaders and for those serving in my nation’s governmental offices.  Lord, help us to elect Godly men and guide our politicians to make wise decisions inspired by the Holy Spirit.  Bless the leaders of every country and all religions and fill them with a high sense of values.  Raise up new leaders who build peace, protect life, and promote the fair and just treatment of all people.  Saint Edward, pray for us.  Amen.
