A Prayer for our Nation on this Election Day

(from the Episcopal Book of Common Prayer, Traditional Collects)
17. For the Nation

Lord God Almighty, who hast made all the peoples of the earth
for thy glory, to serve you in freedom and in peace: Give to
the people of our country a zeal for justice and the strength
of forbearance, that we may use our liberty in accordance
with thy gracious will; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who
liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God,
for ever and ever. Amen.
