Prayer for Illinois

January 29, 2009 marked a sad day for the state of Illinois ~ her first impeachment of a governor.   Though some would say, “It’s finally over; now we can get on with business,” in our anxiousness to resume state government let’s not underestimate the grievousness of these events.   As God’s people, we do grieve over the sins of mankind, especially because we know our own sinfulness.  Now, as our new governor asks for our prayers, may we do just that– pray for our state government and the difficult days she has ahead, to re-build what has been lost.
