PRAYER FOR THE BARANGAY ELECTIONS
we come to you as the Barangay Elections approaches.
In Christ, you have given us the model
of a servant who lays his life down for his sheep.
Give us the wisdom to elect women and men
who will work for truth, justice, and
the upliftment of human dignity.
We ask you to enlighten our minds and hearts –
so that we may search for Shepherds after your Son’s heart
to watch over our barangays.
Teach us Christ’s way of looking at people –
so that we will be able to give a voice
to the poor, the powerless, the abandoned, and the oppressed.
And finally, grant us the gift of discernment –
so that we may wisely exercise the gift of suffrage
as an expression of our desire for peace
and love for neighbor.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
Mary, Queen of Peace, pray for us.
Saints Lorenzo Ruiz and Pedro Calungsod, pray for us.
Saint Michael and all Holy Angels, watch over us.
