doing my part (Mormon version)

Inspired by a recent post on Feminist Mormon Housewives, I called the Washington DC temple to put Barack Obama's name on the temple prayer roll.

The prayer roll is a list of names which is prayed over for the next two weeks by people who are in the temple. Usually people who are sick or having a difficult time are put on the list. I think it's a pretty cool idea. It can't hurt, anyway. If Obama loses, he and his supporters will definitely fall into the "otherwise afflicted" category.

You go! I hadn't even thought of that.

And as for the otherwise afflicted, of course I'll continue to pray for our leaders if (large IF) McCain wins, but it'll certainly take a while for the sour taste to leave my mouth...

I left a message carefully spelling out Obama's name - I could imagine the expression of the elderly temple worker taking it down!
