Peace be with you!
Thank you for sticking with me for another novena. I know it's a lot of emails, but this is an important novena for sure. 
I've had several people who are not from the US email me and tell me that they too are praying for this election because what happens in the US hass effects around the world. 
You can feel free to pray for your own intentions in addition to praying for the election. 
If you would like to post your intentions, click here and scroll to the bottom. 
As we start this novena, I'd like to pray for God's will to be done through this and all elections. 
(Also, please pray for those affected by severe weather and hurricane Sandy)
One last thing before we pray... don't forget to let your friends and family in on this novena. They can sign up to pray Herehttp://www.praymorenovenas.com
Here are the novena prayers for today:
O blessed apostle St. Jude, who labored zealously among the Gentiles in many lands, and performed numerous miracles in needy and despairing cases, I ask you to take interest in my needs. I know that you understand me. Please hear my prayers and my petitions. Please beg God for me and my deepest needs.
(State your intentions)
I pray that I will be patient in learning God's holy will for me and then courageously carry it out in my life.
O St. Jude, please bring these election prayers to the throne of God:
I ask for the eyes to see others as sons and daughters of God.  I ask for help in forming my conscience according to the Gospel so that I may both vote and act for the common good. 
Give me the courage to stand up for the weakest members of society.  The poor, the weak, the unborn.  Give me the courage to re-examine my political loyalties and to be first a faithful follower of Jesus before I follow. 
Remind me that my only true hope is in Jesus and that political power can never replace the the will of God and the mission of the Church. 
For my own vote, help me to cast it in a way that is pleasing to the Lord. Help me to do it reverently and with a well formed conscience.
For these elections, Oh God, please bless us with the best leaders possible at all levels of government. 
My vote is a small but important part of my Christian life. Help me to both vote and live by the Gospel putting my trust in Jesus alone. 
St. Jude, pray for me!
Lord Jesus, Son of God, have mercy on me a sinner!
I've put together some election resources for you:
Thank you so much for praying with me!
God bless you!
