In morning prayer, I read this reading from Maccabees and it touched my heart as we wake this morning to the re-election of Obama. How scary it is to go through another four years with this man and his cohorts, but how wonderful to remember that God is with us always and though we who believe are small in number He who is Lord of the Universe will bring us to victory! God bless!
"It is easy for many to be overcome by a few; in the sight of Heaven there is no difference between deliverance by many or by few; for victory in war does not depend upon the size of the army, but on strength that comes from Heaven. With great presumption and lawlessness they come against us to destroy us and our wives and children and to despoil us; but we are fighting for our lives and our laws. He himself will crush them before us; so do not be afraid of them.”
