O God of all nations,
We beg you for guidance this election day.
We pray for both voters and candidates:
May all of us, filled with your Holy Spirit
and open to the embrace of your lovingkindness,
moving beyond self-interest and factions
into your broad realm of light and love,
where life is honored,
peace vanquishes fear,
and merciful justice heralds the promise of your kingdom.
We pray through the intercession of Mary Immaculate,
Patron of the United States,
