What you couldn't hear on HBO

Bishop Gene's invocation at the Lincoln Memorial:

I am not going to jump into the prayer fray right now.

May all well-intentioned offerings be heard in heaven and on earth and may we all be open to good things coming from Nazareth.

And please, God, keep him safe. We know we ask too much of our presidents, and we’re asking far too much of this one. We implore you, O good and great God, to keep him safe. Hold him in the palm of your hand, that he might do the work we have called him to do, that he might find joy in this impossible calling, and that in the end, he might lead us as a nation to a place of integrity, prosperity, and peace.
