Pray for Iowa

I pray for Iowa this morning.

LGBT folks, and their friends, family, and allies there are sitting on pins and needles. The Iowa Supreme Court may rule today in a court case that could result in same-gender marriage being declared constitutional.

Iowa?

Why not Iowa? This movement, which I believe is God’s movement, is pushing ahead everywhere.  The Holy Spirit of Justice is no respecter of state boundaries. field-of-dreams

Please know that I pray for all Iowans, not just the ones who get it, but also the ones who do not.

I pray all will try to listen to their neighbors rather than condemn them. I pray they will respond with respect. Most of all, I pray that they will trust God enough not to lose their dignity and decency.

Of course, I pray that the court does the just thing. And I give God thanks for getting Iowa even to this point.

Come on, Virginia!
