A Prayer at Election Time

A Pastoral Prayer at Election Time

(from the 1946 and 1993 Presbyterian Book of Common Worship)


Almighty God,

who holds us to account for the use of our powers and privileges:

guide us, we pray, the people of these United States, in the election of representatives of government, that by wise legislation and faithful administration, our nation be enabled to fulfill Thy purposes.

   Help us as good citizens to respect neighbors whose views differ from ours, so that we may elect candidates to serve the common welfare and without partisan anger work out issues that divide us, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
