Prayer Before an Election

I don't know what you've witnessed, but I've seen a lot of people get into some pretty heated arguments over the upcoming election. I've seen friends nearly get into fist fights. It's crazy. On November 7th, we all still have to live in this country together, but it seems like many have forgotten that.

Although politics, elections and amendments are grown-up issues, I'd be willing to bet that our children are still feeling a bit of the tension. Maybe they've even heard a teacher or friend's parent spout their opinion about who mom and dad should vote for.

We can do our best to explain what is going on, but the bottom line is that we need to pray for God's will. So here is a prayer from the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops that we can pray with our kids for the next few days.

And whether or not the candidate you vote for is victorious, we need to pray after the election too. So here's a prayer for that as well!

May God bless our country!
