    understanding of the challenges and obstacles that these men

    the right direction for this wonderful state we call home. I ask                                                            
    that you would be a constant reminder to them that doing

    decisions that may not always be popular. God, I ask that you

    tongues speak what is just. In wisdom we can determine what
