U.S. Government Shuts Down in Budget Impasse
October 1, 2013
After Congress failed to agree on a budget, the U.S. government went into a partial shutdown early Tuesday morning.
Creator God, though our government is shut down, we know you are at work.
Be with the 800,000+ government employees facing financial uncertainty because of forced furloughs, as well as those who must continue at their jobs without compensation. May your assurance and strength be present in each of their lives and let it hasten the work our leaders must do to agree on a budget that is best for our country.
