I received an e-mail update today from a local ministry, urging prayer for tomorrow’s election. The message contained the following titillating tidbit:

I once had a conversation with a U.S. Senator from Virginia, telling him how I had prayed for him and others and how I believed prayer had influenced a number of elections. I was surprised when he said to me, “I don’t really believe prayer influences elections.” While respecting his leadership, I politely disagreed with him, because I sensed he was courting trouble. Though he was heavily favored to win and even rumored to be a presidential candidate, he lost his next election to another man who serves as a Senator for the State of Virginia.

Well, now, just who is this mysterious former senator? Would his first name happen to be George? And, if so, did this discussion regarding the efficacy of prayer (or the lack thereof) vis-a-vis elections come before or after the infamous “macaca” incident? If before, I wonder if Jim Webb’s predecessor might now reconsider his stance on prayer?

Just a thought…

In other non-political news, the entire MonT-SteR CLAN goes to the baby doctor tomorrow to find out whether or not BabY MonT-SteR #2 will be a boy or a girl. I’m so excited!

I’ll post the results of our ultrasound tomorrow…
