In three weeks citizens of the USA will choose their political leaders for terms of two (Congressional), four (Presidential) and six (Senate) years. Many local races are also on the ballot. For non-partisan information about candidates I encourage you to dig deeper by visiting MyVoteSmart. Also, Wisconsin Vote has nonpartisan profiles of the candidates (not just Republican and Democratic) who are on the ballot. (Look for similar resources where you reside.)
O God, You showed us the importance of acting on behalf of those who are without power and whose voices are not heard. Guide us to promote a “seamless garment” of issues concerned with the sanctity of all stages of life and all human beings. We offer a prayer of thanksgiving for our freedom to vote and make our voices heard in the public square. Guiding Spirit, be with us as we use “reason with faith” to judge political candidates and political agenda so we may work for the common good of all. Let us always turn to You in our prayer of active discernment. Amen.
