Doing My Civic Duty

Well, I went out this morning and cast my vote for John McCain. Luckily there was a nice lady running for school board who gave me a peppermint, because the whole thing left a bad taste in my mouth. But this aside our true civic duty is to now pray for those who end up in authority (1 Tim. 2:1-4), as we see in the BOCP:

"O LORD our Governor, whose glory is in all the world; We commend this nation to thy merciful care, that being guided by thy Providence, we may dwell secure in thy peace. Grant to THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, and to all in Authority, wisdom and strength to know and to do thy will. Fill them with the love of truth and righteousness; and make them ever mindful of their calling to serve this people in thy fear; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Ghost, one God, world without end. Amen."
