A Petition for those in or seeking a political office.

Becky and I just returned from a morning in Ruma and Evansville, Il. As I prayed the Prayer of the Church, I thought of the inundation of political ads where one minute a person is somewhere between a saint and a savior of us all and literally the next minute is portrayed as somewhere between the chief of sinners and a devotee of Satan who has suffered catastrophic loss of pigment and appears grey and zombie like.
I found the following petition appropriate:
“To Your kindness, Lord, we commend all who have been entrusted with public service in our land. Keep them ever mindful that they will give account to You. Protect them from every impulse to serve self and to live in luxury or self-indulgence. Fill them with Your wisdom, and make them a blessing to our people.”
