Novena for the Election Prayers

In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.

St. Rita, Patroness of hopeless causes, join us in praying for this election and these intentions: [State your intentions here.]

Heavenly Father,

Give us the gift of hope as we face worldly governments.

Lord, we give You permission to form our consciences according to the Gospel so that we may vote and, more importantly, act for the Kingdom of God.

As we wrestle with the complexity of political life, let us never forget the dignity of every person made in Your image - the unborn, the poor, the vulnerable, the refugee, those affected by war and those suffering from the failings of the political systems of this world.

Lord, we pray for our political opponents - that we may love them as You love them.

Help us remember that political power can never replace the mission of the Church to preach the Gospel to all nations.

Give us the courage to always be detached from our political loyalties and be first a faithful follower of Jesus, the true King. And when it comes time for us to contribute to the political realm help us to cast our vote in a way that is pleasing to You.

For this election, O God, please bless us with the best rulers possible, in this fallen world, at all levels of government.

Finally, just as You brought our salvation from the horrible death of Your Son, we pray that from the political campaigns of this world, You will bring about great good for Your people.

Amen.
