Religious Leaders call for prayers to search for political Politeness

At the time when all hopes go down we pray to Almighty God for his kindness. Ideals of compromise and collegiality have become a distant dream in recent times. Religious leaders have come forward and asking Americans to seek the kindness of the God Almighty. First day of the new Congress, 21st January has been chosen as the day when President Barak Obama will take his oath as president for the second time. All Americans are invited to pray for the compromise and political civility in this day.

Organizers are expecting all Americans no matter what their faith or believe is, will pray for a climate where politicians will be quick to listen, slow to speak, slow to become angry and they will avoid attacking the characters of others or falsely impugning their motives.

The nonpartisan Faith & Politics Institute has organized 18 days of prayer for the nation. The Institution nurtures the spiritual life of member of Congress and their staffs and pressed political foes toward civil debate. Several political leaders including Episcopal Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori, Richard Land of the Southern Baptists’ Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission and Richard Cizik, president of the New Evangelical Partnership for the Common Good, Eboo Patel, a Muslim American who founded the Chicago-based Interfaith Youth Core, and Rabbi Steve Gutow of the Jewish Council for Public Affairs have signed on and will participate on the prayer.

Different religious groups usually encourage individual prayer for the country but this time they all are under one banner. For the betterment of the country they have come forward to organize the prayer. These 18 days, Americans will pray for their country and ask to God for the better political situation inside United States.

Letting Go

Releasing. Moving on. These are words that come to mind when holding on to the status quo becomes too painful or takes too much energy. Even when we’re ready, it’s seldom easy to let go. But when we do, both we and the other person can become the people we were meant to be loving without feeling we must control or be dependent on the… More
