We cry out to You with hearts that need Your blessings.

Hear the right, O LORD, attend unto my cry, give ear unto my prayer, [that goeth] not out of feigned lips.  Let my sentence come forth from thy presence; let thine eyes behold the things that are equal. Hold up my goings in thy paths, [that] my footsteps slip not. (Psalm 17:1-2, 5)

Praise You Jesus, Lord Almighty!  Let us now lift up our hearts, with our eyes and hands, to God in heaven.  Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord God Almighty, who was and is and is to come.

Oh God, we are ashamed and blush to lift our faces to you, our God, for our iniquities have risen higher than our heads, and our guilt has mounted up to the heavens. You have graciously assured us that those who conceal their transgressions will not prosper, yet those who confess and forsake them will obtain mercy.

Dear Lord, truly our hope is in you. Deliver us from all our transgressions. Oh, wash us thoroughly from our iniquity and cleanse us from our sin Oh Lord.  We know our transgressions, and our sin is ever before us.

We thank You, Oh Lord for Your grace and for the blessings you provide. You give to all life and breath and everything.  You are our creator and our source of strength.  We acknowledge Oh God that all we have comes from You. Thank You dear Lord.

Lord, we cry out to You with hearts that need Your blessings.  Give us wisdom to make the right decisions that will bring honor to You. Purify our hearts Oh, Lord. Let the words that we speak draw us closer to Your presence.  We recognize, Oh God, that You are in control of all things. Help this nation to hear Your voice, protect us from evil, and lead us in the path of righteousness.

Place Your hedge of protection around this election tomorrow dear Lord.  Direct the outcome Oh God, that it may glorify You.  Show our people the choice to make.  Direct our paths Oh, God.

Do for us far more abundantly than all that we are able to ask or think, according to the power at work within us and supply all our needs according to your riches in glory in Christ Jesus. Amen.
