A Prayer for Strength and Commitment

Let us pray:

Our heavenly father and giver of life,

Our prayers are being answered every day and for this we are crateful to our creator.

We pray that you will give all of our people wisdom as handed down to us in the writings of the Holy Scripture.

We pray for those looking for work, please give them the courage to carry on.

We pray that you will teach us tolerance and understanding of the needs of others.

We are at a moment in history when we must pray for a modern-day miracle as granted by god for the faith and courage our forefathers displayed fighting the British to save our country. This moment is critical. We must reach to the ends of our souls and pray for strength and commitment needed to save America one more time from the destruction within. 

With all our ignorance, societal problems, a people divided, near bankruptcy and criminal government, we have not lost our faith in god, we have not lost our love for this nation.

January 8th. Of this year a terrible tragedy took place in Tucson, Arizona, where six people were killed and 13 were injured, some severely. We thank god for all the progress congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and all the others have made.
