Prayer before the Election

“Lord, we give thanks for the privileges and responsibilities of living in a democratic society.
Give us wisdom to play our part at election time,  that, through the exercise  of each vote,
your Kingdom may come closer.
Protect us from the sins of despair and cynicism,
guard us against the idols of false utopias
and strengthen us to make politics a noble calling that serves  the common good of all.
We ask this in the name of Jesus Christ Our Lord.  Amen.

“May the Lord bless us,
may he ensure that our country is one
where everyone matters
and everyone is cared for.
