O God, in whom we live, and move, and have our being,Now word has reached me that it is raining in Effingham. The sun is shining in Springfield. I suppose in the future I need to be more specific in my request.

who lives and reigns with you in the uinty of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
