710. On this election day – a prayer of the people

On this election day - a prayer of the people.jpg

A friend posted this on Facebook over the weekend. With today being election day here in the U.S., I wanted to share it on this page.

From the Book of Common Prayer:

Guide the people of this land, and of all the nations, in the
ways of justice and peace; that we may honor one another
and serve the common good.

Silence

Lord, in your mercy
hear our prayer.
