Prayer before Election Day

Almighty and Merciful God, we confess that we are not worthy of the least of the blessings that you have given us as citizens of the United States.  We pray that you would be merciful to us, and to continue to grant us the blessings and freedoms that we have enjoyed.  Guide our people as they elect new leaders; and help us to give honor and obedience to those who are elected.  Give to us leaders who are statesmen rather than politicians, and citizens who recognize that freedom cannot endure together with immorality.  May we seek to preserve not so much our prosperity as the privilege that we may both worship you according to your Word and proclaim your word unhindered.  Amen
