As my life was ebbing away, I remembered the Lord; and

my prayer came to you, into your holy temple.Those who

worship vain idols forsake their true loyalty.

Jonah 2:7-8


The great enemy of freedom is the alignment of political

power with wealth. This alignment destroys the

commonwealth — that is, the natural wealth of localities

and the local economies of household, neighborhood, and

community — and so destroys democracy, of which the

commonwealth is the foundation and practical means.

Wendell Berry


Lord God, thank you that we are unable to save ourselves

and that each time we try, we fail. Have mercy on us. Be

the strength in our weakness. Clear our heads of the

foolishness of believing we can be our own gods. Steer our

hearts to utter dependence on you. Amen.

Common Prayer
