Election Day Prayer

Undivided Women invites you to join in prayer with us on this important day in our country.  

O God of justice and compassion. You have called us to use our gifts to your glory. You challenge us to claim Your power and presence in us. Today we lift up the gift of citizenship that we have been given in the United States. We give thanks for the opportunity to participate in this democracy. We know that You expect us to use the gifts You have given us. We will step forth in faith. We will become faithful citizens. We will use our gifts. We will study the issues. We will study Your word and the guidance You have given us. We will pray for our democracy, our current elected leaders, and our future leaders. We will seek to support the candidates that we think best reflect our values. We will use our power. We will claim our gifts. We will vote today, Tuesday, November 8. And when the elections are over, we will pledge to support those elected through prayer and regular communication of our concerns to them. Thank you God for your gifts and the opportunities you see before us. Amen.
