ELECTION DAY 2012
Thanks to my church, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, for sending its members this prayer on election day.
Lord God, you call your people to honor those in authority. Help us elect trustworthy leaders, participate in wise decisions for our common life, and serve our neighbors in local communities. Bless the leaders of our land, that we may be at peace among ourselves and a blessing to other nations of the earth; through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. Amen.
- Evangelical Lutheran Worship, pg. 77
Voting is one aspect of faithful citizenship; the ELCA e-Advocacy Network reminds you to cast your ballot tomorrow, if you have not already. If you need assistance finding your polling place, checking your voter registration information, or confirming what types of voter identification your state requires, this site may be able to help.
