Lord, we give thanks for the privileges and responsibilities of

 living in a democratic society.

Give us wisdom to play our part at election time,

 that, through the exercise of each vote,

 your Kingdom may come closer.

Protect us from the sins of despair and cynicism,

guard us against the idols of false utopias

and strengthen us to make politics a noble calling

 that serves the common good of all.

We ask this in the name of Jesus Christ Our Lord.
