May God Bless and Keep the President

By Alden Solovy

A prayer compiled from Facebook comments, January 2017

May God bless and keep the President from …
... turning his back on refugees.
... abandoning minorities, the poor, and the disabled.
... alienating our allies and empowering despots.
... destroying LGBTQ rights.
... telling women how to control their lives and their bodies.
... destroying our country.
... irreparably damaging the Supreme Court.
... abandoning the tired, the poor, the huddled masses yearning to breathe free.
... forgetting the truths that are self-evident.
... speaking then denying then speaking then denying.
... establishing a national religion, abandoning the separation of church and state.
... inciting even more racism, anti-Semitism, and misogyny.
... mocking the disabled, attacking Gold Star families, and denigrating women.
... disemboweling the Fourth Estate.
... unleashing sinat hinam.
... undoing this grand experiment in recognizing inalienable rights.
... being re-elected.

May God bless and keep the President …
... occupied with trivial matters to limit his impact.
... aware of all the communities he was elected to serve.

May God bless and keep the President away from…
... Obamacare.
... Twitter.
... the nuclear launch codes.
... Medicare and Social Security.
... the White House.
... acting on his misogynistic impulses.

May God bless and teach the President…
... humility, justice, and kindness.
... to keep his oath to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States.
... to build bridges of kindness and trust between all the peoples of the United States.
... to build bridges of kindness and trust between all the peoples of the world.
... the true meaning of compassion and human dignity.
... to see his inadequacies and his inappropriateness for the job.
... the difference between leading the nation and humiliating dissenters.

May God bless and save the President from himself, and save us from him.
