Prayer for the November Elections
based on the prayer offered on November 10, 1791,
by John Carroll of Baltimore,
first Catholic Bishop of the
and cousin of Charles Carroll,
Catholic signer of the
Declaration of Independence
Almighty and eternal God, you have revealed your glory to all nations. God of power and might, wisdom and justice, through you authority is rightly administered, laws are enacted, and judgment is decreed.
We pray that our November elections may result in a President who honors and obeys your divine law, who encourages respect for virtue and religion, who executes the laws with justice and mercy, and who seeks to restrain crime, vice and immorality.
We also pray that we may be blessed with elected officials in every branch of government who seek to preserve peace, who promote national happiness, continue to bring us the blessings of liberty and equality, and who guard our political welfare with honesty and ability.
We commend to your unbounded mercy all the citizens of the United States, that we may be blessed in the knowledge, and sanctified in the observance of your holy law. May we be preserved in union, and that peace which the world cannot give; And, after enjoying the blessings of this life, be admitted to those which are eternal.
We pray to you, who are Lord and God, forever and ever. Amen.
Mary, Patroness of the United States under the title of the Immaculate Conception, pray for us.
