Lord have mercy on President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, on the Cabinet, the Congress, the judiciary, on all civil authority, and save their souls, O Good One. Grant them wisdom to guide our nation in peace, that in peace we may pray to You, O Most High.

Lord, have mercy!
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth
