Today, the people of the most powerful nation in the world, sometimes the most great-hearted and compassionate, sometimes the most violent and destructive, wake up to choose our leaders. Let us pray.
Give us, O God, leaders whose hearts are large enough to match the breadth of our own souls, and give us souls strong enough to follow leaders of vision and wisdom.
God of all, in all, through all, we, clinging to the safe shores of our understanding, we believe You work in time. We ask now, Your Presence, in this fluidity of time, as we face national elections.
