Politics and Prayer

I am thankful for The Republic. She has weathered numerous elections with folks of whatever stripe cheering/complaining about the results. Some of the results have been excellent; some…not so  much. Yet, we endure.

Regardless of your political stance, or your religious one, it is always a good time to pray for those in authority. They shoulder burdens most of us cannot fathom. The only people who can come close to understanding are those who have walked in those shoes (at whatever governmental level), and even then, the circumstances are never the same. (cf: Heraclitus).

Dr. Charles Stanley has an excellent post giving Christian reasoning for praying for the President.

So if you’re the praying type, pray. Send positive energy, if that’s what you do. Think encouraging thoughts. Whatever.

Just don’t be like Moriarity
