Election Prayer: part 2

eucharist_by_okamihi

On Tuesday, November 8 at 7:30pm, we will hold a special Eucharist service for Election Day. A number of churches around the country are holding prayer vigils and services and we’ve invited our sister churches to join us for this service.

In preparation for our time together, please join us in praying this prayer below this week.

Merciful and loving God, as we prepare for the upcoming election, send the light of your Holy Spirit into the hearts of all in our nation. Bring peace and hope wherever there is confusion, discord and apathy. Awaken in us a strong desire to work for the common good of all peoples, especially for the most vulnerable in our world. Enable us to differ and to dialogue with reverence and respect for one another. Pour out on us a spirit of wisdom and discernment to help us choose government officials who will lead our country in the path of truth, justice and peace. We ask this in the name of the Risen Christ, who is always with us. Amen
