Prayer for Election Day, and Every Day
Almighty, Loving God: We thank you for the blessings you have given this nation. Help us, we pray, to live out the words of the motto of our Great Seal--E Pluribus Unum. Help us to truly become from many people, one people, united by love and concern for this country, but more importantly, love and care for each other, animated by charity and wisdom in all we do. Grant us, we pray, a sense of caritas and discernment on this day, and the willingness to exercise these gifts for the sake of our government and our leaders. Make them a blessing unto us, and more importantly to our world, which is a part of your glorious creation. We humbly ask this in Your Holy Name. Amen.
