At Election Time

Almighty God, who dost hold us to account for the use of all our powers and privileges: Guide, we pray thee, the people of these United States in the election of their rulers and representatives; that by wise legislation and faithful administration the rights of all may be protected, and our nation be enabled to fulfil thy purposes; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

From A Book of Offices and Prayers / For Priest and People, 2nd revised edition, 1929. (The first edition was published in 1896.)
