Legislature’s chaplains praying harder by the day

As the legislative session drags on, the chaplains’ prayers increasingly reflect the impatience. In the House, the Rev. Eunice Brubacker observed this week that “our leaders are in a standstill, frustrated as to what to do,” and thanked God for “renewed energy” to “work together in unity to do what is your will and not our own individual wills.” In the Senate, the Rev. Cecil T. Washington asked God to “bring us together, united around the issues, in humble submission to you” and spoke of the parable of the tiny mustard seed that grew into a large tree: “Lord, give these men and women that Matthew 17:20 mountain-moving, mustard seed faith.” Amen. – Rhonda Holman
