as part of a Day of Lamentation, Fasting, and Prayer for our upcoming national election.

Forward Movement and The Episcopal Church Office of Government Relations are calling Episcopalians and all others to join in A Season of Prayer: For an Election. Find more info at www.forwardmovement.org

Join us October 27-November 4.

We come together, asking God for courage and wisdom, thanking God for love and joy. As we move toward the election of leaders for the United States, may we all join in a season of prayer, committing to offer to God our fears and frustrations, our hopes and dreams.

A novena is an ancient tradition of nine days of devotional prayers, often with a specific intention. In this case, we pray for discernment in voting and for the well-being of our nation.

Starting October 27 and continuing through the day after the election, we invite you to pray for the election of leaders in the United States. Materials are available in English and Spanish for use at home or to share with you congregation. These prayers, drawn from The Book of Common Prayer, can be printed out and tucked in a Bible or prayer journal.

The prayers will also be posted daily on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, #seasonofprayer.

Find more tools for election engagement on The Episcopal Church’s Office of Government Relations website.
