I have been back from Washington for a couple of days but I have to get these last few pics out. We had such a great vacation and we have learned so much. What a great country we live in! We need to remember to pray for our government leaders even if we did not vote for them. When we went to visit the Capitol we were able to attend a session of congress. It was cool to be in the room where so much activity happens. What struck me the most when I looked at my senator from our state was the thought he is just a man! He has great authority and power given to him by our Lord, but he is just a man. I was so convicted that I don't pray for him at all. That is now on my prayer list... to pray for our government leaders.
if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
