The election according to Alaina

Our little smartie has been paying far too close attention to the commercials....I guess you know who she will be voting for!  You may think she has been prompted, but honestly, she pays pretty close attention and asks LOTS of questions.  Her answers are her answers.

Remember, we serve a faithful and sovereign God and the winner of this election will not be a surprise to him.  We need to pray for our country and its leaders daily no matter who they are.....

Almighty God,
We make our earnest prayer
- that Thou wilt keep the United States in Thy holy protection,
- that thou wilt incline the hearts of the citizens to cultivate a spirit of subordination and obedience to government;
- and entertain a brotherly affection and love for one another and for their fellow citizens of the United States of America at large.
And finally that Thou wilt most graciously be pleased to dispose us all
- to do justice,
- to love mercy and
- to demean ourselves with that charity, humility and pacific temper of mind which were the characteristics of The Divine Author of our blessed religion, and without whose example in these things we can never hope to be a happy nation.
Grant our supplication, we beseech thee, through Jesus Christ Our Lord.
George Washington, April 30th, 1789
