Use Them To Battle

Let us pray.  Eternal God, we stand in awe of You.  Lord, when babies die at a church school, it is time for us to move beyond thoughts and prayers.  Remind our lawmakers of the words of Edmond Burke: All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good people to do nothing.  Lord, deliver our Senators from the paralysis of analysis that waits for the miraculous.  Use them to battle the demonic forces that seek to engulf us.  We pray in Your powerful name.  Amen.

-- Chaplain Barry Clayton Black, 62nd chaplain of the United States Senate (27 June 2003 -) in his opening prayer, 28 March 2023
