It's the First Tuesday Again...Pray with Us!

It's the first Tuesday of the month already!  I'm joining my friend Amanda in fasting and praying this prayer on the first Tuesday of each month leading up to the election, to end on election day (but hey, it's also Super Tuesday so please make sure to pray that the best man wins today as well).

 Won't you join us??   Please?  It isn't much and the more we have praying and fasting the better for us and for our beautiful country.  Please PRAY and FAST (that part we always forget, am I right?) as we beg our Lord to bless these elections and our country so that our country can build a culture of life.

I challenge you to pray, fast and act.  We are obligated to be active in the public sphere and we must do everything in our power and in our state of life to foster a country of life, liberty, and freedom.

If you can commit to pray and fast with us, please leave a comment below so we know you're in!


Lord God,
as the election approaches,
we seek to better understand the issues and concerns that confront our city, state, and country,
and how the Gospel compels us to respond as faithful citizens in our community.
We ask for eyes that are free from blindness
so that we might see each other as brothers and sisters,
one and equal in dignity,
especially those who are victims of abuse and violence, deceit and poverty.
We ask for ears that will hear the cries of children unborn and those abandoned,
men and women oppressed because of race or creed, religion or gender.
We ask for minds and hearts that are open to hearing the voice of leaders who will bring us closer to
your Kingdom.
We pray for discernment
so that we may choose leaders who hear your Word,
live your love,
and keep in the ways of your truth
as they follow in the steps of Jesus and his Apostles
and guide us to your Kingdom of justice and peace.
We ask this in the name of your Son Jesus Christ and through the power of the Holy Spirit.
