A pre-election prayer

This prayer just came through in a mailing from a friend and so I share it with you … It seemed very applicable as a pre-election prayer ...

Lord, we pray for the power to be gentle;
the strength to be forgiving;
the patience to be understanding;
and the endurance to accept the consequences of holding to what we believe to be right.

May we put our trust in
the power of good to overcome evil and
the power of love to overcome hatred.
We pray for the vision to see and the faith to believe
in a world emancipated from violence,
a new world where fear shall no longer lead men to commit injustice,
nor selfishness make them bring suffering to others.

Help us to devote our whole life and thought and energy to the task of making peace,
praying always for the inspiration
and the power to fulfil the destiny
for which we and all humankind were created.
