vote4Regardless of where you stand on the issues or what candidate you support, I hope you will join me in uttering this prayer tomorrow:

Under your law we live, great God, and by your will we govern ourselves.  Help us as good citizens to respect neighbors whose views differ from ours, so that without partisan anger, we may work out issues that divide us, and elect candidates to serve the common welfare.*

I fear the passion so many feel will turn to vitriol tomorrow.  Might we model something different?   Ultimately, the One who brings us hope is not a political candidate.  No matter what happens the One who claims us and sends us out will continue to reign.  That is my hope.  That is my prayer.
