A Savior on Capital Hill

This song was in my head all day yesterday.

Oddly, last night I had to pray publicly about the election. I guessed that some in the room were of the opinion, “Christians must be dyed-in-the-wool Republican.” Without going into all the details, I don’t believe that. I don’t think they must be Democrats, either. Or Libertarians. Or members of the Green Party. Or…anybody else want to weigh in here?

So I did my best to pray Biblically: against fear, for wisdom and compassion for all those affected by the policies of our leaders, and for discernment and energy as we attempt to be involved as citizens of our temporary home. (“Energy” is my need, as it’s usually my temptation to say, “NO politician tells the truth…I give up,” and wash my hands of the whole thing.)

But wow, I was sweating.

I may or may not have made reference to a lyric from this song. Here’s the “official video” as well as a link to the lyrics:

    Hey, way cool new brown waving pattern!Good praying. I am tired of the knee-jerk partisanship assumptions that go along with Christianity.


  2. The Nature Of Reading

    I heard the prayer and you did well. It scares me when Christians forward “fear Mail” that can’t be proved. How is that bringing Glory to God to talk bad about someone. Especially things that we don’t know for a fact. I’m not excited about our choices for the election, but I know it is all in God’s hands and He holds my future.
