Election day prayer

“My kingdom is not of this world, you say, yet, “The kingdom of God is at hand.”

And so we wait, and watch, and vote, and pray, “Thy kingdom come,”

all the while hoping that each small act of kindness, strength, integrity,

love may bring us one small step closer to where you brood

over us, waiting to draw us out of deep waters,

declaring, “Let there be light!”
