I've been successfully recruited by Sojourners for their "prayer surge" to our Congress...it's sort of like volunteering to invade the Senate and House with a contingent of prayers for peace.
So, ever the spiritual foot soldier, I sent this prayer to inspire our Senators and Representatives to withdraw from Iraq and dedicate the billions to aid for the stricken Iraqis instead :
O Divine Spirit,Hey, it's an all-volunteer army! So go sign up in the spirit of peace:
Inspire our members of Congress that they may reflect and remember that our true safety lies in you, not in our armaments or our nuclear payloads. As Jesus reminded us, you are the mother hen, longing to gather us all safely under your wings. May we learn to take refuge in you and in you alone.
