SAY AMEN SOME­BODY

The Washington Times Weekly - - Politics -

“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.
