A prayer for the Election:

So many policies, so much cynicism, just one vote. Loving God, thank you for caring about how our country is run, and that we have the right to vote for our politicians and government. But in the run-up to this Federal Election there are so many policies to understand, and so many different points of view to consider – sometimes I wonder whether there’s any point in voting, whether anyone cares what I think.

As I choose who I am going to vote for, help me not to be cynical about politics and politicians, help me to remember that my vote can make a difference, and help me vote for those people who will protect the poor and vulnerable, and do all they can to make our nation a place of fairness and peace. Because you call us to act justly, love mercy and walk humbly with you, our God. Amen.

  1. All of the above. I do believe if we should not confuse God with voting. If God cared he would not be allowing one party to be taking funding from the very poor and leaving third world countries without vaccinations. He would care more for our elderly and have the so called catholic religious person think and care more for our Aged and our children. God has nothing to do with who marries who nor does he have a place as does any religion in politics or sport. Choose wisely where you vote as some have better coconut ice and fudge than others. Sales pitches and looks can be deceiving.
