During national elections in any country, there are always issues that call for our prayers. These include apathy, or the feeling that one vote won’t make a difference; the frustration that "they are all rascals anyway" so it doesn't matter who wins; the perception that special interests, not the people, govern; and the heated passions that come with political polarization.
Whether or not you're in the United States or another place where voting is going on, everyone’s prayers for a harmonious and noble election are very much needed. Prayer can help energize voters to participate, support a smooth voting process, and ensure a safe and actively engaged day for everyone. Join this chat on election day in the US with Christian Science practitioner and teacher Rob Gilbert to support a peaceful and uplifting election.
