Pray for Senator Nelson
I want to encourage you to pray for Nebraska's Senator Ben Nelson. Senator Nelson, who's office is just 25 blocks from the Old Mill Campus and has been open to meeting with me in the past, is in a major pressure cooker. If you have been watching the news lately, you know that his vote is the swing vote in the health care reform debate. He has already made a courageous and commendable move by trying to take federal funding for abortion out of the health care package. Now, his vote(s) can be the difference in the future for hundreds of millions of people, including us, our kids and grandkids.
The issue is not whether you are Democrat or Republican, whether or not you like Senator Nelson or how you feel about health care reform. I want to call on all CCC members who believe in the power of God, His sovereignty over human affairs and His love for all people to have His way with Senator Nelson. Pray that he will have wisdom to understand the implications of this 2000 page bill. Pray that he will have the backbone to stand for what is right.
The Bible exhorts us to pray for those in authority. There is no time like the present.
