Pray God of Justice, you have given us the chance to vote. Help us to reflect and use our votes wisely to tackle injustice where we see it, and to pray for countries where people do not have the opportunity to vote.
God of Love, you tell us to love our neighbours as ourselves. Help us to participate in elections in ways which demonstrate our love for our neighbour, and to wrestle with what the common good means for us today.
God of Transformation, you have called some people to put themselves forward as candidates. Help them as we debate their ideas for a better world and support them as they experience the strain and privilege of election. We ask these things in the name of your son Jesus Christ, Amen.
