A prayer before action
Our Father, who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy name.
Thy Kingdom come,
Thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us,
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil,
For Thine is the Kingdom, the Power, and the Glory,
Forever and ever,
-- The Lord's Prayer
For the first time since Ronald Reagan's election to the Presidency in 1980, these United States of America have a real choice presented to them.
The very same God that I once rejected, whose Name I spat upon repeatedly in my youth, and who, in spite of my many offences against Him, never once turned His back upon me.
The very same God who had repaid my faith in Him these past several years an hundredfold.
Lord, this nation's fate is now in Your hands. We have done all we can do. The people of this country seek relief from their many afflictions, and they turn to You now for aid. There are millions of good and decent people in this land, who deserve to have their faith in You rewarded.
Those who oppose us spit on Your name, they do everything You damned as highest crime. They are, without question, twisted and evil beyond recognition as human beings. And now they seek to rule over us all.
Lord, do not abandon us now in our hour of need.
DEUS VULT, brothers.
E'en now their vanguard gathers,
E'en now we face the fray--
As Thou didst help our fathers,
Help Thou our host to-day!
Fulfilled of signs and wonders,
In life, in death made clear--
Jehovah of the Thunders,
Lord God of Battles, hear!
-- From "Hymn Before Action", Rudyard Kipling
