A prayer for deciding who to vote for

Heavenly Father,

Thank you that you give wisdom and understanding.
Please give me that wisdom as I decide how to use my vote.

Help me to see clearly and to have good discernment as I engage.
Help me to use my vote to look out for the voiceless and oppressed, and not just for my own good.

Help me to look to you only for my hope, and to keep things in perspective.
Thank you that I’m a citizen of your kingdom first.

Amen

A prayer for unity as we navigate differences of opinion

Lord Jesus,
On the night before you were crucified you prayed that your church would be united.

In the run up to the election, as we discuss and navigate differences of opinion, help us to keep our focus on you and to remain united in you.

Help us to debate and deliberate with grace, humility and generosity, whilst also standing strong on our convictions.

Let our unity and the way that we approach the election point people to you.

In your name we pray.
Amen.
