AN ELECTION PRAYER TO MARY
O Most Blessed
Virgin Mary, Mother of Mercy, at this most critical time, we entrust the
United States of America to your loving care.
Most Holy Mother, we beg you to reclaim this land for the glory of your Son.
Overwhelmed with the burden of the sins of our nation, we cry to you from
the depths of our hearts and seek refuge in your motherly protection.
Look down with mercy upon us and touch the hearts of our people. Open our
minds to the great worth of human life and to the responsibilities that
accompany human freedom.
Free us from the falsehoods that lead to the evil of abortion and threaten
the sanctity of family life. Grant our country the wisdom to proclaim that
Godís law is the foundation on which this nation was founded, and that He
alone is the True Source of our cherished rights to life, liberty and the
pursuit of happiness.
O Merciful Mother, give us the courage to reject the culture of death and
the strength to build a new Culture of Life.
