Please Pray for Justice Sotomayor

As she is sworn in, it is another opportunity to rise above our partisan symbols and snarks and do what the Bible says - to pray for those in public authority.

Almighty God, who sittest in the throne judging right: We humbly beseech thee to bless the courts of justice and the magistrates in all this land [especially Sonia as she is sworn in as a justice of the Supreme Court of the United States]; and give unto them the spirit of wisdom and understanding, that they may discern the truth, and impartially administer the law in the fear of thee alone; through him who shall come to be our Judge, thy Son our Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.
The Book of Common Prayer
