Election Day Prayer


Father,

We come to you today to lift up our nation. We pray that your will be done here as it is in Heaven. Our nation is not where you desire it to be. We have slowly walked out from under your protective hand. What we need today is not a political leader, but a spiritual leader who can call your Church to be unified. We need your help in putting aside our differences so we can focus on what unites us. Help us to be One Body with One Purpose. Help us to heal this divided nation so it can continue to stand.

I pray for the hearts of voters today. Since we have a government of the people, for the people, and by the people, I pray that the people will vote in a way that brings about your will for us. None of us can see what the future would be with any of these candidates. Only you can. So I’m asking that you help us to elect people that will allow us to not only to continue to serve you freely, but to be able to preach your Word freely. 

Stir our hearts, Lord. Begin a revival in your Church. We recognize that to change the nation’s culture, we must first allow you to change ours. Set a fire in each of us that burns away the things that are not of you. Let that fire spread throughout this country and the world. We know that to change the world, we must live changed lives. May our lives lift you up so that you can draw all men unto yourself.

Forgive us for our past mistakes. Give us a unified vision of who you want us to be. Give us your compassion to heal the broken. Put in our hearts to pray for our leaders. It’s in our nature to tear them down, but it’s in yours to build them up. Help us to remember that whoever we elect will not change who you are or our role in society. Direct our paths. Guard our lives. Help us to show your love to everyone we meet regardless of whether we agree with them or not. Help us to see people the way you see them so we can create a culture that reflects your desires in the world.

In Jesus’ name I pray,

Amen.
