When a Leader Prays

When a leader prays


"As I travel across the country folks often ask me what is it that I pray for. And like most of you, my prayers sometimes are general:  Lord, give me the strength to meet the challenges of my office. Sometimes they're specific: Lord, give me patience as I watch Malia go to her first dance  where there will be boys. Lord, have that skirt get longer as she travels to that dance.  


But while I petition God for a whole range of things, there are a few common themes that do recur. The first category of prayer comes out of the urgency of the Old Testament prophets and the Gospel itself.  I pray for my ability to help those who are struggling.  Christian tradition teaches that one day the world will be turned right side up and everything will return as it should be. But until that day, we're called to work on behalf of a God that chose justice and mercy and compassion to the most vulnerable."

Muppet Matrix

Only in 'Merika...

It is obvious to the rest of the world that only in 'Merika ... moral-less, ethic-less, conscience-less, God forsaken (ask any member of the Westboro Baptist cult), wealthiest, most arrogant, most egotistical, seemingly least educated 'Merika that some people would have the depravity to call our current President of the United States, Barack Obama a ... racist.  Only in 'Merika!
