Prayer for before the election

MCC has some election resources including this
Prayer for before the election
Almighty God, we need your presence in our country/province during this election time.
Guide all the candidates to campaign fairly and present their viewpoints honestly.
Guide all 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.
Empower us to hear and take into account the voices of the marginalized.
Empower all voters to turn out so that election results will be more truly democratic.
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.
Increase in us wisdom and discernment as we elect a federal/provincial government. Amen.

- This prayer was written by Carol Penner of Vineland, Ontario.
