From Dean of Sydney Sandy Grant:

Almighty God and Loving Heavenly Father, we humbly ask you to direct the hearts of those who seek election to our state parliament, and of us as we exercise our democratic freedoms.

May we vote unselfishly for the common good.

Protect politicians from the temptation of self-serving. Enable them to make realistic promises and help them keep their word.

Uphold those elected to serve in the new Parliament through all the heavy demands that come upon them, that they may serve with integrity.

May the decisions of our parliaments, state and federal, lead to the safety and welfare of this country, so that peace and happiness, truth and justice may be established among us. Amen.
