CatholicVote.org has released "An Election-Year Prayer" by Cardinal Raymond Burke, prefect of the Supreme Tribunal of the Apostolic Signatura at the Vatican:

O Lord Jesus Christ, you alone are the Way, the Truth and the Life.

In your Church, you show us the way, you teach us the truth, and you give us your life.

Grant, we humbly beg you, that, always and in all things, we may be faithful to you in your holy Church and to your vicar on earth, the Supreme Pontiff, Pope Benedict XVI.

Grant also, we beg you, that, in these times of decision, all who profess to be Catholic and who are entrusted with the sacred duty to participate in public life may, by the strength of your grace, unwaveringly follow your way and faithfully adhere to your truth, living in you with all their mind and heart, for your greater glory, the salvation of souls and the good of our nation.

Amen.

Our Lady of Guadalupe, Mother of America, pray for us.

St. Thomas More, patron of religious freedom, pray for us.
