Election Day Prayers

I voted in the 2012 election

Election Day 2012 by Mark Alves

Some candidates don’t have a prayer of winning, but you might want to share an election prayer on your church website or on your church’s social media accounts. Here are some suggestions to get you started.

Lastly, here’s an election prayer by the US Catholic Bishops:

Prayer Before An Election

Lord God, as the election approaches,
we seek to better understand the issues and concerns
that confront our city/state/country,
and how the Gospel compels us
to respond as faithful citizens in our community.

We ask for eyes that are free from blindness
so that we might see each other as brothers and sisters,
one and equal in dignity,
especially those who are victims of abuse and violence,
deceit and poverty.

We ask for ears that will hear the cries of children unborn
and those abandoned,
men and women oppressed because of race or creed, religion or gender.

We ask for minds and hearts that are open to hearing the voice of leaders
who will bring us closer to your Kingdom.

We pray for discernment so that we may choose leaders
who hear your Word, live your love, and keep in the ways of your truth
as they follow in the steps of Jesus and his Apostles
and guide us to your Kingdom of justice and peace.
We ask this in the name of your Son, Jesus Christ,
and through the power of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
