Election Day

This was my first time to vote in an actual booth.  Throughout college and seminary I had always voted by mail.  Admittedly, I had fun this morning casting my ballot.  And even though I don’t agree with any candidate on all issues, I did what I did.  My hope is in God, not in any earthly power or principality. 

When I am at a loss for words in trying to articulate my hope for elections, I look in the Prayer Book.  

A Prayer for an Election

“Almighty God, to whom we must account for all our powers and privileges: Guide the people of the United States in the election of officials and representatives; that, by faithful administration and wise laws, the rights of all may be protected and our nation be enabled to fulfill your purposes; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
