On this Veterans Day, Franciscan Sister Leonette Kochan, who serves in the Office of Human Life and Dignity for the Diocese of Tucson, offers a prayer after the U.S. elections that our Sisters are praying at San Xavier Convent.
Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity at San Xavier Mission, Tucson, AZ, prayed a novena prayer before the national elections. As we all continue to recognize the need for prayer for our country, we are now praying this PRAYER FOLLOWING an ELECTION as an after the election novena. Perhaps others will join us.
Prayer after an election
God of all nations,
Father of the human family,
we give you thanks for the freedom we exercise
and the many blessings of democracy we enjoy
in these United States of America.
We ask for your protection and guidance
for all who devote themselves to the common good,
working for justice and peace at home and around the world.
We lift up all our duly elected leaders and public servants,
those who will serve us as president, as legislators and judges,
those in the military and law enforcement.
Heal us from our differences and unite us, O Lord,
with a common purpose, dedication, Amen.
