Prayer has always been significant for me. I was at a Chamber of Commerce luncheon not too long ago, and I mentioned the fact that I pray for our elected officials. When I was in the process of becoming a different kind of man of the cloth a group of us visited Focus on the Family in Colorado Springs, and I'll forever remember Psalm 127:1 on on the wall of an administrative building out there. 

And it's right. We do labor in vain if what we're building isn't built by God. 

Obama was given a lot of grief about his statement about the government building our businesses, but neither one of us was right. 

We aren't puppets on a string, but fact is nations are created and fall only because God allows them to be created and to fall. 

In God we trust.
