SAY AMEN SOMEBODY
“Lord, when our federal shutdown delays payments of death benefits to the families of children dying on faraway battlefields, it’s time for our lawmakers to say, ‘Enough is enough.’ Cover our shame with the robe of your righteousness. Forgive us, reform us and make us whole. Amen.”
— A recent prayer before the U.S. Senate by Chaplain Barry Black, who is a retired rear admiral, former Navy chaplain and a Seventh-day Adventist minister.
