Prayer for Fairness for All Citizens:
Jesus, 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. I am asking that you empower me to better understand 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 who 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 that will represent all citizens. Blessed are the peacemakers.
Your Word is a lamp unto my feet. I pray that our elections are fair and that all citizens accept the results in a peaceful manner. 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
Prayer for Those Conducting Elections:
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 who are willing to make the changes needed to make sure the voices and will of the citizens of my country are heard.
We pray for those who are running for office, that they may be guided by honesty, integrity, and a desire to serve the common good. We pray for those who will be responsible for conducting the elections, that they may do so with diligence, impartiality, and fairness. 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.
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.”
