Almighty God, we need your presence in our land during this election time.
Guide the candidates to campaign fairly and present their viewpoints honestly.
Guide the voters as they listen and assess the positions of the different parties.
Jesus, you cared for those who were poor, physically challenged, social outcasts.
Walk with us into the voting booth and help us make a wise decision,
taking into account not only our own needs, but the needs of others.
Inspire many to vote, so the will of the people can be heard.
Holy Spirit, you enliven us as Christians to be salt and light in this world.
Increase in us conversation, vigilance and prayer about this election,
and remind us that many in the world do not enjoy the human right of democracy.
Bless our outgoing leaders, and protect our incoming ones;
we rely on you for peace in our time.
