Almighty God, to whom we must account for all our powers
and privileges: Guide the people of Sioux Falls (and all communities) in the election of officials and representatives; that, by faithful administration and wise laws, the rights of all may be protected and our nation be enabled to fulfill your
purposes; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Book of Common Prayer, 1979, p.822
On a personal note, our older son turned 18 late last year, and this is his first opportunity to vote. We are grateful that he is looking forward to this and that he takes the time to seek information about public issues.
