Tuesday's Prayer

Lord, may this 112th Congress of the United States of America be an instrument of Your goodness with abiding laws embraced and clarity in policy statements; reaching beyond institutional thinking and public opinion polls. May every human life of this country be renewed with dignity and purpose so we may truly glory in the name of the free children of God made in Your image and conformed to Your saving grace both now and forever. Amen
