11/5/02 Our Father, we pause again to give you our thanks for this day and our freedom. Guide us, guide all people of this nation – this day – to exercise our privilege & responsibility to elect those who seek to serve. And help those elected to serve wisely – to follow your lead and to represent us with integrity. Amen
This prayer of Dad’s should be repeated each election day. It is as constant and persistent a cry, today as always.
A perennial need expressed in prayer is fittingly displayed on a perennial fixture in my family’s life…a personal sized breadboard for a modest-sized sandwich. It was sufficient for my lunch as a child and still.
Integrity: what is really asked and needed?
