Pre-Election Prayer

"The Bible says Submit to the authorities for they are God’s servants who give their full time to governing.

Our great and loving God, we thank you for (candidates names), and pray your particular blessing on them all. You are the great king of all, and we commit into your hands those who will hold authority and be trusted to lead our country forwards. We pray for ourselves, that you would guide us in our thinking and voting, and help us all to play our part wisely as responsible citizens as together we seek the good of all. Have mercy on us and on our whole nation, for the sake of Jesus Christ who died for us, rose again, and loves us; for he is Lord, and we pray in his name. Amen."

This was the prayer that closed our Hustings on Tuesday night, and I asked for a copy of it. A good thing to pray for a general election.
