Dear Lord let us be thankful for living in a nation that still inscribes "In God We Trust" on its coins. A place that dispite or because of its flaws, can still work toward being more united. Where my family has rights that are not to be usurped by government and it is free to grow and prosper from its own labors and sacrifices. Let us be ever mindful of the toils, pain and death of soldier and citizen alike who helped build this nation. Protect our troops and bring them home to us soon. Help the unemployed find meaningful jobs. Let this year be a learning experience to show us the value of responsibility and perils of rampant spending. Provide us with resources and opportunities to help our neighbors. Bring wisdom, hope and knowledge to the President and Congress that they can be better leaders. Keep all of us from harm and danger. Watch over the unborn, that they may continue to live. Remind us here on USMB that none of us are the enemy, but simply strong supporters and believers in our causes. Foster understanding and tolerance. Finally Lord, let the Democrats lose like crazy in 2010. Amen.
