Many people have already done their civic duty, and to those folks I give a nod and a "Thank you!" There are others who prefer to wait until the day to cast their ballot. Well, this is it! Go forth and do what you will to give us our elected leaders.
O God, who remains present and patient with us; guide our minds and hearts as we discern in the voting booth the best, and most compassionate course for our local, state and national politics. Help those of us who are serving our counties on this day to remain faithful stewards of this right to choose our leadership. And may we emerge from this season so marked by bitterness and hatred a people willing to set our sights higher in the days to come. In your name we pray. Amen.
