Letter: Pray for our country

Disappointed by politicians

It is quite disappointing that Congress accomplishes so little, as well as our president. In the Senate, I am so frustrated with Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi.

I recently read in the book,“Illustrations Unlimited,” by James S. Hewett, a great truth concerning our situation today with Congress. Quote: “When Edward Everett Hale was chaplain of the U.S. Senate, someone asked him, ‘Do you pray for the senators, Dr. Hale?’ He replied, ‘No, I look at the senators and pray for the country.’”

Need we say more? It’s sad that this is actually the position we are in today.
