St Michael StatuePRAYER OF SAINT MICHAEL

    Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle; be our protection against the

    wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray:

    and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God, thrust into hell

    Satan and all the evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls.

Amen.

Election

Prayer Before an Election

Lord God, as the election approaches,
we seek to better understand the issues and concerns that confront our city/state/country,
and how the Gospel compels us to respond as faithful citizens in our community.
We ask for eyes that are free from blindness
so that we might see each other as brothers and sisters,
one and equal in dignity,
especially those who are victims of abuse and violence, deceit and poverty.
We ask for ears that will hear the cries of children unborn and those abandoned,
Men and women oppressed because of race or creed, religion or gender.
We ask for minds and hearts that are open to hearing the voice of leaders who will bring us closer to your Kingdom.

We pray for discernment
so that we may choose leaders who hear your Word,
live your love,
and keep in the ways of your truth
as they follow in the steps of Jesus and his Apostles
and guide us to your Kingdom of justice and peace.

We ask this in the name of your Son Jesus Christ and through the power of the Holy Spirit.
Amen.
