Righteous Ruler of the universe
we lift up to you our nation on the eve of this election,
for it is under your authority
and by your will that we govern ourselves.
We pray for every citizen that your Spirit
will plant in our minds your wisdom
that removes all ignorance from our decision making;
and will place in our hearts your vision
for a compassionate society
that removes all hatred from our voting.
Prepare and protect those who will administer
this great process of our democracy.
Bless and guide every candidate
to receive with humility the outcome of our voting.
Help us as good citizens to respect our neighbors
whose views differ from ours,
so that without partisan anger,
we may work together for the common good
that which is pleasing in your sight.
All praise and honor is yours,
Great Governor of all nations,
for you are in control of our lives
and you have given us the assurance
that one day your will shall be done on earth
as it is in heaven,
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
