Over at Beliefnet, David Kuo has posted this snippet from the Sunday talk shows. It’s House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on the subject of prayer:
PELOSI: Of course I do.
WALLACE: To win?
PELOSI: Of course I do. Of course. What a question. First of all, I pray for President Bush all the time, and I–prayed especially hard that he would sign the…children’s health bill, because it’s so important to America’s children.
WALLACE: When you pray for President Bush, what do you pray for?
PELOSI: I pray that, that–well, at the same time as I pray for him, I pray for America’s children, and that there can be some compatibility in their thinking. But I pray for his health; his well-being. I pray that he makes the right decisions for the American people, but, when I was–
WALLACE: –Do you ever pray for him to change his policies?
PELOSI: All the time! But–let me draw a line: When I was growing up in politics, we were always told that we shouldn’t pray for a political outcome — that we just pray that God’s will would be done. We pray for the children, we pray for the poor people, we pray for people who need help; and we always, always, always pray for our men and women in uniform, who make our freedom to pray possible.
Well, that certainly makes me feel better.
