I pray for the leaders of Alaska, this country and all                        
others.  May they listen to the spirit of truth and                            
not be swayed by false and bitter voices of a                                  
frightened world.  Shield them by Your virtue                                  
given, and forgive and correct them for their lack of                          
it.  May their words always be true and their                                  
strength go before them.  Breathe Your Spirit of                               
peace like a gentle breeze.  Prepare them to be                                
reconcilers with courage and vision.  May they                                 
know that You are the source of their being even as                            
they protest Your existence.  You have always been                             
with them, and may You continue to be there as                                 
they  deliberate  in  each  day.   Your  will  comes
