As Christians, we bring our faith to our civic engagement, whether that is through the elections process or through our advocacy to elected leaders.
The leaders we elect make the decisions that impact people experiencing hunger and poverty here in the Unites States and around the world.
In our democracy, we seek to love our neighbors and God’s creation and we are called to elect wise and just leaders. As you prepare to cast your ballot, please pray for all presidential and congressional candidates:
Dear God, our Creator, through our elected leaders and our government, you sustain all you have made.
We pray especially for people who are seeking election to political offices in our country. Grant them integrity and wisdom to focus on matters that strengthen our government and protect the most vulnerable among us.
Give us courage to challenge candidates to address issues of hunger and poverty. As we prepare to cast our votes, may we be guided by your vision of justice and mercy.
In the name of Christ, we pray. Amen.
