Note: This novena prayer may be read daily for nine days. We suggest that additional petitions be added according to the needs of the area.

 

Opening Prayer

God our Father,
We come to You as one people
Praying for our country in this moment of transition.
Once again,
We will choose our government leaders.
You gave us this responsibility.
We pray that You enable us to do our duty
According to Your will.
We also beg for the grace:
Of an open heart to receive whatever You will for us,
Of courage to do our duty,
Of faithfulness to Your ways,
Of faith to trust in You.
We ask all these as one People,
Through the intercession of Mary our Mother,
In the Name of Christ our Lord.
AMEN.

We consecrate our nation to Your divine protection and love as we go through this very significant event as a nation. Grant that this elections be honest, orderly, peaceful and meaningful to all. We ask You this through the intercession of the blessed Mary, our Mother, Amen.

Closing Prayer (Prayer for Elections)

Father,
Lord of our lives and our history,
You empower us to choose by our votes
those whom You wish to govern us.
Soon we shall once more use our sacred right to vote;
Grant our voters the grace to choose wisely
the people who will be entrusted with public office.
Make us choose persons of high moral integrity,
honest, competent and unselfish,
who love the poor and promote the common good
in a spirit of genuine service and love,
persons who will lead us to unity and progress as a people.
Give us the grace of courage and watchfulness, Lord,
so that before, during, and after the elections,
we may resist and overcome
all those who do not have the common good in mind.
May these coming elections be peaceful and orderly
and show that we are a mature people
who stand on the side of justice and truth.

We ask this through Christ our Lord.

Amen.
