7 Uplifting Prayers for Elections in My Community

Prayer for Fairness for All Citizens in My Community:

Psalm 106:3 “Blessed are they who observe justice, who do righteousness at all times!”

Jesus, you have watched as the elections in our country have become more and more controversial–deeply dividing our country. I want to be a good steward of my voting ability. I praise you that I live in a country where our voices can be heard through the ballot box and pray that continues. I ask that you empower me to understand better the issues and concerns facing our city/state/country. I pray you show me the right candidate(s) who will lead according to Godly principles and work to build a stronger country.

In Romans 13:1 you tell us “Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except God, and those that exist have been instituted by God.” I stand firm that you will hear our cry to put those in authority for the glory of your name.

Father, I also pray that You touch the hearts of all voters so that they look beyond the standard norms and vote according to Your guidance. Tradition is deeply ingrained in many of us. I pray that tradition is followed if it honors you and that it be tossed aside if it isn’t for the good of ALL citizens and the nation. Our country needs leaders who will represent all citizens. Blessed are the peacemakers.

I lift all the people who are involved in running elections. Lord, remove any nefarious actions they may have. I ask that your Holy Spirit convicts any that may be operating in a manner outside the law. Remove any bias they may have and lead them to operate within the law to ensure all elections are fair to all candidates.

Proverbs 10:9: “Whoever walks in integrity walks securely, but whoever takes crooked paths will be found out.”

Your Word is a lamp unto my feet. I pray that our elections are fair and that all citizens accept the results peacefully. No matter the results, I will continue to honor You as the ultimate authority and live according to Your Word.

By the power of the Holy Spirit, your will be done. Amen

Romans 2:11 “For God shows no partiality.”

Prayer for Those Conducting Elections in My Community:

Psalms 47:8 “God reigns over the nations; God is seated on his holy throne.”

Lord, you know our election system is broken. I petition you to raise up people willing to make the changes needed to ensure the voices and will of the citizens of my country are heard.

We pray that those running for office may be guided by honesty, integrity, and a desire to serve the common good. We pray that those responsible for conducting the elections may do so with diligence, impartiality, and fairness. I bind Satan in his attempts to create havoc in my country when it comes to elections. Lord, purify the hearts of those conducting the elections. Open their eyes to anything evil in their hearts. If any one of them is living apart from You, I pray for their salvation through Jesus Christ. Let their new relationship with You convict them if they are conducting any activities that apart from the election laws.

Above all, we pray that the outcome of this election may honor you and bring about a more peaceful, just, and prosperous society for all.

I ask all in the precious name of Jesus, Amen

2 Chronicles 7:14 “if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”

Prayer for Peace at All Polling Locations:

Romans 12:18 “If possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all.”

Heavenly Father,

My heart is heavy with the division in our country. Our election system is broken, and the people are losing trust in having their voices heard. Today I pray for all polling locations as we go to the polls. As we prepare to exercise our right to vote, we ask for your guidance and protection for all those who will be participating in the electoral process. I pray that every polling location worldwide will be a place of peace, safety, and respect.

I ask that you calm any tensions and eliminate any threats of violence or intimidation that may arise. May everyone who comes to the polling stations feel safe, respected, and valued, regardless of their political beliefs or personal background.

Philippians 4:6-7 “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

May our leaders and candidates be guided by wisdom, compassion, and integrity as they seek to serve our communities and countries. I pray they listen to the voices of all citizens, especially those who are marginalized and vulnerable.

I pray for a fair and just electoral process, free from fraud, manipulation, or undue influence. Guide the workers so every vote is counted accurately and without delay, and all parties involved accept the results with grace and humility. Expose any person who interferes with an election or conspires to conduct any activities that are outside the law.

Finally, I ask for your blessing on our world to work together toward peace, justice, and equality for all. May our hearts be filled with love and compassion, and may we always strive to create a better future for ourselves and future generations.

Prayer for Voters in My Community to Be Informed of All Issues:

Deuteronomy 1:13 “Choose for your tribes wise, understanding, and experienced men, and I will appoint them as your heads.”


I praise you for being a God of order. Throughout your Word, you make it clear your design is for an orderly creation. I am thankful my country has an election system where I can vote. I strive to be aware of the issues on the ballot. My prayer is for all voters to research the candidates and issues rather than vote based on the opinion of others. I pray all voters vote for the principles in your Word. May the power of the Holy Spirit guide their hearts.

Acts 5:29 But Peter and the apostles answered, “We must obey God rather than men.”

As we approach important elections, I ask that you guide and enlighten the minds of every individual who will be casting his or her vote. I pray that every voter will have access to reliable information and that they will take the time to study and understand the complex issues facing our society today. May they seek out different perspectives and consider diverse opinions before making decisions.

I ask that you give each voter the courage to stand up for their beliefs, even if it means going against popular opinion. May they vote with their conscience and be guided by their own values and beliefs. I pray voters select leaders who will lead with an understanding of Biblical truth.

We also pray that the media and other sources of information will provide unbiased and objective coverage of the issues. May they help voters to make informed decisions rather than manipulate or influence them.

Finally, I ask that you bless our country with wise and just leaders who will work toward the common good and strive to create a better future for all. May we all be united in our efforts to build a more just and equitable society.

We ask this in your holy name. Amen.

John 16:13 “When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come.”

Prayer There is No Election Fraud in My Community:

2 Corinthians 8:21 “For we aim at what is honorable not only in the Lord’s sight but also in the sight of man.”


We live in a fallen world where some operate out of self-interest rather than honesty. We see this in some elections. I pray for a fair and just electoral process before you. I ask that you guide and protect our democratic process and help ensure no election fraud.

I pray that every vote cast is counted accurately and fairly and that every citizen’s voice is heard. May there be no manipulation, corruption, or fraudulent activity that would undermine the integrity of the election.

Proverbs 11:1 “A false balance is an abomination to the Lord, but a just weight is his delight.”

I ask that you bless those responsible for the election – the poll workers, election officials, and everyone involved. May they be guided by honesty, integrity, and a commitment to fairness. Lord, if any are living a life apart from Jesus, I pray that the Holy Spirit moves in their lives, convicting them of the need for a Savior. Transform them into a new creation in Christ.

I also pray for our leaders and those in positions of power. May they respect the democratic process and accept the election’s outcome with grace and dignity. May they work towards the common good, regardless of the election’s outcome.

Finally, I ask that you bless our country with wisdom, compassion, and unity. May we all come together to build a better and more just society, and may our democratic process be a shining example of what can be achieved when we work together toward a common goal.

I ask this in your holy name. Amen.

Prayer For Voters to Elect Leaders Who Will Protect and Defend the U. S. Constitution:

Galatians 5:1 “For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.”

Faithful Father

Your hand has been on America since its birth. Your works are evident in the God-inspired U.S. Constitution. My heart is heavy because today, there is an assault on the document and the God-given freedoms you have given us. I come before you with a prayer for our nation and its leaders. As we approach important elections, I ask that you guide and enlighten every voter’s mind and help them elect leaders who will protect and defend the U.S. Constitution.

I pray that every voter will recognize the importance of upholding the Constitution and that each will choose candidates who share this commitment. May they be guided by the principles of justice, equality, and liberty and seek out leaders who will work toward the common good.

I ask that you bless our country with wise and compassionate leaders. May they have the courage and integrity to uphold the Constitution and defend the rights and freedoms of every citizen. May they work tirelessly to promote peace, prosperity, and justice for all. Put the desire in the lives of the leaders to study and follow the principles set forth by our Founding Fathers. Lord, it seems what our Founding Fathers outlined in the birth of our nation has been skewed or forgotten. I pray that there is a resurgence in people desiring to understand what our country was founded upon. I pray it begins in the classrooms of our educational system.

I also pray for our nation as a whole. May we come together in unity, despite our differences, and work towards a brighter future. May we be guided by the values and principles enshrined in the Constitution and always strive to live up to its ideals.

We ask this in your holy name. Amen.

James 1:25 “But the one who looks into the perfect law, the law of liberty, and perseveres, being no hearer who forgets but a doer who acts, he will be blessed in his doing.”

Prayer for Clear, Accurate, and Timely Results From Elections:

2 Corinthians 8:21 “For we aim at what is honorable not only in the Lord’s sight but also in the sight of man.”

Heavenly Father

Our country needs your intervention in our elections. There is so much division in our country and our election system has been part of the division. Today I come to you with the request for clear, accurate, and timely results from our elections. I ask that you guide the process of our elections and protect them from undue influence or corruption.

I pray for transparency and fairness in the election process so that the people’s voices can be heard through the ballot. May the counting of the votes be conducted with honesty and integrity so that the results are clear, accurate, and timely.

Leviticus 19:35 “You shall do no wrong in judgment, in measures of length or weight or quantity.”

I pray for the leaders of our country who will be elected so that they may be wise, just, and compassionate. May they lead our nation with humility and a heart for the people they serve. May they follow through on their oath to support the US Constitution.

I ask for your peace and comfort during this time of uncertainty and that your light shines upon the path ahead, providing guidance and wisdom to all involved.

I offer these prayers in faith and trust that you will hear our voices and bless our nation with a fair and just election. Amen.
