Today has the potential to be a day of anxiety, unrest, and fear. While many Christian thinkers and leaders have written on the election (and we have published quite a few articles on it as well), we wanted to offer this simple prayer to reflect, contemplate, hope, and provide comfort regardless of what political candidate wins.


Jesus Christ

Lord of Lords and Prince of Peace

Comfort us on this election day


Empower us with your Spirit to choose

Peace over pride

Hope over hatred

Forgiveness over fear

To love our neighbor not lust for their defeat


Remind us that your Kingdom exceeds our kingdoms

Your Will unbound by any party or platform

Issue or ideology

Despite the outcome may we pray together with you

“Your Kingdom come,

Your will be done,

On earth as it is in heaven.”
