Prayers on Election Day

Prayer for the Election


Be close to us during this time of discernment,
Lord God of steadfast truth.
Grant us patience in listening,
wisdom in speaking,
and courage to seek the common good.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
Who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
God for ever and ever. Amen

Prayer for the Nation

God our Father,
you guide everything in wisdom and love.
Accept the prayers we offer for our nation;
for the wisdom and integrity of those called to leadership,
so that harmony and justice may be secured
and there may be lasting prosperity and peace.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
Who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
One God, for ever and ever. Amen
