Prayer for general election

Heavenly Father,

We thank you for the opportunity to vote – to hold those in power to account,to freely exercise our values and beliefs.Please give us wisdom as we do so,and grace as we interact with those who disagree with us.We thank you for all the candidates in this election – for those who will serve in Parliament,for those who will govern our country.Fill their hearts with compassion and a desire for justice,so they will attend to the cries of the poor and oppressed.

In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.
