National Day of Prayer

Over here in the United States of America, we have the National Day of Prayer. This is scheduled for the first Thursday in May each year and it is a time when we stop and pray for our country and its leadership.

As a pastor I was asked to lead a small prayer circle at our local event. My choice of bible verse this evening was:
Wisdom [is] the principal thing; [therefore] get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.
Proverbs 4:7
Why that verse when there are so many others that would do just as well? Partly it was that without wisdom, the ship of state is unlikely to steer straight, but mostly the Lord just dropped that one on my mind right there while waiting for my turn to speak.
