Prayer I Delivered at Opening of Fall Election Republican Headquarters

Heavenly Father, We, members of the Watauga County Republican party, come to truly seek your wisdom and guidance. We do not do this in some perfunctory ritual as a way to start a meeting. We have many reasons for praying to you.

First, we are aware that when your people Israel acknowledged you and sought your guidance, you were able to prosper them and make them a great nation. We also know that when they turned away from you, their enemies overran them and destroyed them. Even nature turned against them with a vengeance.

Also, today is the anniversary of our amazing Constitution which has created the greatest nation in the history of the world.

We know that many of our founders sought your guidance throughout the process. We know that many knew they were receiving your divine guidance in fashioning documents far beyond human wisdom.

We know that afterwards when each congress met, they continued to thank you and to ask for your continued help–a tradition which comes down even today.

Father, many of us call ourselves conservatives and by that we mean that we are sworn to conserve the values of this great document You helped to produce.

Father, we know that founders like George Washington and John Adams came out of that convention realizing they had produced a document made for moral and religious people. They said it was wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

For all these reasons Father, we are bold to ask you to guide us. Help us to send to Washington, to Raleigh and to governments of our communities--people who will protect and defend that constitution.

And to you be the glory.
