Holy Spirit, we come before you this day in humility and gratitude to beg Your choicest blessings upon the American people, as we go to ballot boxes across our nation to decide the fate of America.
Grant us in abundance Your gifts of:
WISDOM: that we may always be guided to place the spiritual good of the nation as the highest good.
UNDERSTANDING: that we may recognize the simplicity of truth.
COUNSEL: that we may recognize the will of God under circumstances that discourage lesser men.
FORTITUDE: that those whom we elect may be given the spiritual and physical strength to accept the inevitable burdens of leadership with courageous endurance.
KNOWLEDGE: that we may know the vastness of our mission and yet retain humility of spirit and charity for each and every soul.
PIETY: that in the manifold duties of offices our elected representatives may always find time to communicate quietly with God and therein find peace of soul.
FEAR OF THE LORD: that we would forego worldly honors and recognition rather than bow to the will of evil men.
May You bless and direct our leaders for as long as it is Your will for them to guide the destiny of this nation and the world.
Hear our pleas, Heavenly Father. We know You are still in charge, even when we falter and despair, for You love us so You sent Your only Son to suffer and die for us.
Father, we thank You that You hear our prayers spoken out loud or whispered in the quiet of our beating hearts.
Amen.
