Lovely Daughter sent me this link a couple of days ago, and I just now found it in a backlog of email. Among the quotes featured there I found this:
When the Reverend Edward Everett Hale was chaplain of the U.S. Senate, he was asked if he prayed for the Senators.
“No,” he said. “I look at the Senators and pray for the country.”
Then, there’s this one, that ought to suggest “active prayers” (getting out and doing something about a problem) about the situation it portrays:
During one of his campaigns against President Eisenhower, Adlai Stevenson was approached by a supporter.
“Governor, every thinking person will be voting for you,” she told Stevenson.
“Madam, that’s not enough,” he replied. “I need a majority.”
(*sigh* One of the BIG reasons we have the Congress we have and probably THE reason we have the loons and poltroons we have running for president this year.)
