The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God.  They have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good. The Lord looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God.

Psalm 14:1,2

             Lord, hear our prayer… That the agony of ten years will be remembered today in prayer and contemplation, and that the resolve of this great nation will withstand this test and result in wisdom, for the sake of those left behind, here and across the globe.

         We pray that this wisdom imparts the Grace of your risen Son in ways that lead to comfort and trust… That bind the wounds of hate and terror, so that we might move foward, into the Light and walk the path of peace. That our entrusted leaders will walk that path with us, and sheath the sword of retribution in favor of the light of understanding.

            Let us never forget, that we are ALL His children, and deserving of his love.      Amen.
