O Lord, our God, on this day that we hold so dear in our nation, bless us with the resolve to support candidates to represent us in government that will seek justice.
Bless the efforts of those who seek to lead in good conscience, with the goal of serving all citizens, regardless of their background, political leanings, sexual orientation, race, economic status, or personal faith traditions.
We ask that you bless us with the wisdom and strength to elect men and women of character and goodwill, who will not forget that those who are poor, homeless, unemployed, or are mentally ill, are also citizens worthy of the protections of a nation that you have blessed with untold wealth.
We ask that you bless us with the wisdom to elect peacemakers; those who would make peace in our society as well as in war. Bless us with representatives that will serve their "blue" and "red" constituents equally, with fairness and justice.
We ask these things in the name of the Father, and of The Son, and of The Holy Spirit.
