Democrat Wes Moore made history in 2022, becoming Maryland’s first African American governor. In Moore’s victory speech, he said, “You can’t love your country if you hate half the people in it. Real patriotism means bringing people together. It means lifting each other up and improving each other’s lives. Patriotism means knowing that our country is great — and that if we do the work, it will be even greater. Tonight, we celebrate, and tomorrow we get to work,” Moore concluded his victory speech, pointing to his belief of what patriotism is and a call to action for his supporters.
Father, we pray that Your wisdom will surround Governor Wes Moore and all those around him as he takes this new position. Let the Holy Spirit breath upon him as he makes decisions and signs new legislations in Jesus Christ name.
