Election Day Prayer

Almighty God, you have given us this good land as our heritage. 
Make us always remember your generosity and constantly do your will.

Bless our land with honest industry, truthful education, and an honorable way of life. 
Save us from violence, discord and confusion; from pride and and arrogance, and from every evil course of action. 
Make us who came from many nations with many different languages a united people. 
Defend our liberties and give those whom we have entrusted with the authority of government the spirit of wisdom, that there might be justice and peace in our land. 

When times are prosperous, let our hearts be thankful; and, in troubled times, do not let our trust in you fail. 
We ask all this through Jesus Christ our Lord.

(LSB p 313)

Earth, hear your Maker’s voice;
Your great Redeemer own;
Believe, obey, rejoice, 
And worship him alone.
Cast down your pride,
Your sin deplore, 
And bow before
The Crucified.

And when in power he comes,
Oh, may our native land
From all its rending tombs
Send forth a glorious band,
A countless throng,
With joy to sing
To heaven’s high king
Salvation’s song!
