American Politics and Prayer

In the aftermath of yesterday’s election, how do you feel?  Vindicated? Energized? Depressed? Frustrated?  We all have our own feelings about politics.  Whether we are Republican or Democrat, politics brings up emotions that stir our passions.

I read a thought provoking article this morning by blogger Chilly Chilton.  I thought I would share it with you:

“Well, the complexion of American politics has – once again – changed… with some, there’s rejoicing and with others there’s great disappointment. I, for one, am glad that the mud-slinging commercials will come to an end for a few months…

I pray that we can work harder, love unconditionally and rise beyond partisan lines to regain the vision of our forefathers who declared that we are “IN GOD WE TRUST“.

Here’s today’s provocations:

1. Are you happy, sad or indifferent with yesterday’s elections? Why?

2. What ONE issue has the most influence on your voting (abortion, healthcare, economy, social justice, etc)?

3. Can politics change (REINVENT) America? Explain.

4. Do you, honestly, pray for your elected leaders (National, State, Local – any/all parties) each day? What’s the heart of this prayer?”
