Our Father in heaven,
We are at peace because you are still on the throne. Our world has been turned upside down by this pandemic and now we find our nation about to elect new political leaders.
Lord, we humble ourselves and seek your face. Help this nation to elect good and upright men into authority. For if we elect self-serving people into power, we will all groan and suffer. Grant us discernment to sift the voices and opinions of people and parties. We want to hold to what is true and good and wise.
Move our heads and hearts by your Spirit to elect men and women who walk in humility, integrity, compassion and justice.
Shine your face upon us and be gracious to us. We want this nation to be a praise and glory to your name.
In the name of Jesus Christ we pray. Amen.
