A poor widow came and put in
two small copper coins, which are worth a penny.
Your copper penny is enough.
Your one vote. Your one prayer.
Your one little good deed.
Any gift given with love
is filled with God
and so with infinite power.
In faith, give the copper penny.
Trust each one.
And give many.
Imagine a life full of such miracles.
A prayer for election day
God of love, as we vote today
may your love and courage and hope prevail,
and after the votes are counted,
may your love and courage and hope prevail.
