I am thankful to live in a country where I can vote. I pray for wisdom to make the right decisions at the voting booth.

Lord, in your mercy, here our prayer:

Almighty God and most gracious God, whose mercy is from everlasting to everlasting, we bow before you in gratitude.

You have preserved us in all our ways. You have given us wisdom when in difficulty, strength when we were weak, and courage when needed. All our days have been overshadowed by your love, and all our ways have been blessed by your presence.

We come asking your blessing upon us in this time of our nation. Endow our leaders with wisdom and our people with righteousness. Grant that the gains of the past may be conserved and that the opportunities of the present may lead to a better future. Make our country as pure in soul as she is vast in territory.

As we head into the voting booth, inspire the people of this nation to goodness and truth. And as we wake up on Wednesday, unite us as people of goodwill. Grant that in this nation the people’s of various races, classes, and political persuasion may come together for the purpose of justice and hope, faith and freedom. We offer our prayer in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
