Well, I'm not Jesus, but, in February, I was summoned by City Clerk Mendoza's office to give the invocation at the monthly meeting of City Hall. It was an exhilarating time and a privilege to represent Jesus and our church. It was great to meet Mayor Emanuel. In my prayer I had mentioned the children on the streets of Chicago and all the violence, etc. When chatting ever so briefly with the Mayor, I mentioned to him that I pray for him. He said, "Don't worry about me. Just keep praying for the kids." Indeed, our city officials need our prayers for multiple reasons. The least of which is to execute well the power that God has given them. We can love on our city by praying for "the kids", the aldermen, AND Mayor Emanuel.
