As Scotland votes to elect Members of the Scottish Parliament today, we give thanks for our democratic system and rejoice in being able to offer places across the diocese where people can vote. Today, parts of Holy Trinity Episcopal Church, Ayr, St John's Episcopal Church, Greenock and St. Cyprian's Church, Lenzie serve as polling stations.And we pray:Loving God, creator of this world who is the source of our wisdom and understanding, watch over this land during this time of election. Help us to see how our faith informs our principles and actions. God, our creator, guide us in truth and love.We give thanks for the right to vote. Help us to hold this privilege and responsibility with the care and awareness it merits, realising that our vote matters and that it is an act of faith. God, our creator, guide us in truth and love.Help us create communities that will build your kingdom here on earth—communities that will protect the poor, stand up for the vulnerable, advocate for those who are not seen and heard, and listen to everyone’s voice. God, our creator, guide us in truth and love.We pray for this world that is deeply divided. May we come together for the common good and do as you have called us to do—to act justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with you through creation. God, our creator, guide us in truth and love.Lord, continue to guide us as we work for the welfare of this world. We pray for places that are torn by violence, that they may know peace. We pray for communities who are struggling with injustice, inequality, unrest, and fear. May we all work toward justice and reconciliation with one another and with God. God, our creator, guide us in truth and love.Help us to listen in love, work together in peace, and collaborate with one another as we seek the betterment of our community and world. God, our creator, guide us in truth and love.Image: Photo of the polling station sign outside of St John's halls in Greenock. ... See MoreSee Less
