As Catholic citizens of the United States, we ask for Your blessing. Impress upon us the importance of our voting privileges. May we apply the moral teachings of our Catholic faith to the decisions we make.
We pray for ourselves and for our elected officials. May we help the unempowered and put those who are suffering before ourselves. May we be open to the promptings of Your Spirit, sensitive to Your will, and willing to seek Your grace.
Gracious Lord, have mercy on our country. Preserve us as a God-fearing nation, ever ready to profess, defend, and seek Your wisdom.
Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception, Patroness of our United States, pray for us!
