a blessing for Election Day

o God, we are anxious as we stand at the edge of so much opportunity, so much danger.

God, calm our fears. protect us, and all that is true and just and good.

God have mercy.
Christ have mercy.
Spirit have mercy.

God You stilled the roaring of the seas, the pounding of their waves, and the tumult of the nations.” —Psalm 65:7

God have mercy.
Christ have mercy.
Spirit have mercy.

blessed are we to turn to You and pray
o God, bless our lands, and through this whole election
inspire honesty in every intention, decency in every action, 
integrity  in every decision, and the healing of every division.

grant us grace to respect others and listen patiently
in a way that restores the possibility of change
and creative compromise.

blessed are we who ask that you establish stability and peace
through leaders who will work for the good of us all,
who will seek reconciliation, 
and unite our countries in a way forward together 
to shelter those who are vulnerable, hurting, and afraid.

blessed are we who trust You
to stand by us, strengthen us, and guide us
by the light of Your wisdom and love.

God have mercy.
Christ have mercy.
Spirit have mercy.

pray once. then find someone to laugh with you. there is time.

may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.”  —Romans 15:13
