Good afternoon from Starbucks, where I am using their wifi. We are without power both at home and church, as I imagine many of you are, too. I hope everyone is safe and that you have not had any damage to your home.
Here is the prayer for the Thursday before the election, a prayer for those who influence public opinion:
Almighty God, you proclaim your truth in every age through many voices: Direct in our time, we pray, those who speak where many listen and write what many read; that they may do their part in making the heart of this people wise, its mind sound, and its will righteous, to the honor of Jesus Christ our Lord.Amen.
