     With the deepest respect for the religious beliefs of all                                                                  
     Alaskans, I offer the following prayer:                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
     This month Jews observe the holiday of Passover which                                                                      
     celebrates Moses leading the Israelites out from Egyptian                                                                  
     slavery. To win their freedom Moses must stand up to the                                                                   
     most powerful man in the empire, Pharaoh. Time and time                                                                    
     again, Moses intercedes with Pharaoh. Time after time,                                                                     
     Pharaoh refuses to let the people go. I like to imagine what                                                               
     Moses must have felt in those dark moments of rejection.                                                                   
     Moses was not a confident man. He didn't like to speak in                                                                  
     public. I imagine him going over his speech for Pharaoh again                                                              
     and again in his head. Each time he worked up the confidence                                                               
     to confront Pharaoh, he had to go back and tell his fellow                                                                 
     Israelites that he failed. Many people, brave people, would

     have given up. But Moses persisted. He went to Pharaoh not                                                                 
     once, not twice, not five, not seven, not nine times. Moses had                                                            
     nine chances to give in to say, I fought hard, but the other side                                                          
     was just too strong. If he had, the Israelites would have never                                                            
     made it to the promised land.                                                                                              
                                                                                                                                
     May each of us find inspiration from Moses. In dark moments                                                                
     let us pray that we have the courage to persevere. Like Moses,                                                             
     may we never give up in the pursuit of what we know to be
