Donald Miller recently gave the benediction at the Democratic National Convention. Though I don’t always agree with everything this cat says or does, I don’t think you can argue his words at the DNC. Here is some of what he had to say. To read the prayer in its entirety, check it out here.
Give us a passion to advance opportunities for the least of these, for widows and orphans, for single moms and children whose fathers have left. Give us the eyes to see them, and the ears to hear them, and hands willing to serve them. Help us serve people, not just causes. And stand up to specific injustices rather than vague notions…
I make these requests in the name of your son, Jesus, who gave his own life against the forces of injustice.
Let Him be our example.
