Say A Little Prayer



Today is The National Day of Prayer, and there have been numerous opinions written on whether the U.S. should even have such a day, some in favor, while others have been opposed. President Obama seemed to split the difference by signing the proclaimation for it, but not having a public prayer event, a departure from George W. Bush's celebratory style.

Politics aside, I encourage you to take a moment out to prayer. There are so many things to pray for- the messy ecomomy, the soldiers involved in the war, our communities, our families, even ourselves. Or follow Jesus' words, and pray like this:


Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil:

For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever.

Amen.
