A Verse to Consider
As You Prepare to Vote on Tuesday: 
Remind them to be subject to rulers and authorities, 
to be obedient, to be ready for every good work, 
to speak evil of no one, to avoid quarreling, 
to be gentle, and to show courtesy to everyone.  
Titus 3:1-2
 
An Election Prayer: 
Eternal God, amid all the turmoil and changes of the world 
your love is steadfast and your strength never fails.

In this time of uncertainty,
be to us a sure guardian and rock of defense.
Help us to elect trustworthy leaders,
participate in wise decisions for our common life,
and serve our neighbor.

Guide us with your wisdom, comfort those in distress,
and grant us courage and hope to face the future
that we may be at peace among ourselves
and a blessing to other nations;
through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord.
Amen.

The Church confesses Christ, who has broken down the dividing wall (Ephesians 2:14). Christ, our
peace, has put an end to the hostility of race, ethnicity, gender, and economic class. The Church
proclaims Christ, confident this good news sets at liberty those captive behind walls of hostility
(cf. Luke 4:18).
