Loyalty and Justice

May 2, 2010

If you have understanding hear this; listen to what I say. Can he who hates justice govern?  Will you condemn the just and mighty One? Job 34: 16-17

. . . O my people, your guides lead you astray; they turn you from the path. Is. 3:12

Dear children, do not let anyone lead you astray . . . 1 John 3:7

Lord, when political parties require “loyalty oaths” which they seek to enforce regardless of a representative’s conscience, hear our cry for freedom.

Lord, when money decides who can run and what views the voter hears, hear our cry for truth.

Lord, when power and celebrity are the guiding forces of many who would seek to govern, raise up stewards of the public good.

Lord, when the noise and fear and confusion threaten to overwhelm us, grant us the wisdom to find our way.

We put our trust in you, O Lord, as we look to build a better future.
