For the President of our country, for the Congress and the judiciary, and all those in civil authority, Lord have mercy.

Amen to that.  With all the foolish things they do, now, imagine what our government would do without our prayers?

Lord, have mercy!

Just a general reminder that we're permitted to pray for politicians on the Prayer Forum, as long as our prayer requests don't mention specific political issues.  Thank you.

Do you KNOW the right decision(s)?

Courteous is my name,
and I have always aimed to live up to it.
Grace is also my name,
but when things go wrong
its Courteous whom I blame;
but its Grace who sees me through it.

John,

Please send me a private message to explain how this post is appropriate for the Prayer Forum and why I shouldn't move it.  Thank you.
