Peace be with you!
Today I'd like to pray that the elections bring leaders who make it easier and more popular for Christians and people of good will to love and protect the poor and weak. 
I pray for leaders who will stand up for the life and dignity of the human person from conception until natural death.
Also, let's keep praying for those affected by hurricane Sandy!
Here are the novena prayers for today:
Dearest St. Jude, friend and apostle of Christ and expert in despairing cases, hear my prayers. In all my needs and desires may I only seek what is pleasing to God and what is best for my salvation and the salvation of the world. Saint Jude, please beg God for help with my requests...
(State your intentions)
I submit my prayers to you with great confidence in your intercession. I know that you will pray fervently at the feet of God that I may receive His greatest blessings. I know that our good and gracious Lord leaves no sincere prayer unanswered in some way. Help me to see His answers and praise Him even if they are not what I expect.
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!
