A Prayer for Town Meeting Day in New Hampshire

We lift up to your presence, O God, all members of the churches in New Hampshire who take part today in Town Meetings across this great state of New Hampshire.  May they see the work of local government as a calling and a ministry. May they bring to their speaking and voting brains that think and hearts that feel.  May they have charitable ideals, inspired imagination, godly wisdom and courage. May they not be bound by routine and convention and popular opinion, but always be guided by Your liberating Spirit.  May that same Holy Spirit lead us in the formation of a true and godly commonwealth where the rights of all may be protected, and may all your children enjoy a fair portion of the abundant resources of your creation, through the grace of Jesus Christ.
