A Prayer for Those Who Influence Public Opinion:

Almighty God, you proclaim your truth in every age by many voices: Direct, in our time, we pray, those who speak where many listen and write what many read; that they may do their part in making the heart of this people wise, its mind sound, and its will righteous; to the honor of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

From the Book of Common Prayer

The Episcopal Book of Common Prayer is a treasure trove of wisdom. The joy of a written prayer book is that we may say the prayers with our lips so often that they lodge themselves in our hearts and begin to shape our lives. Our media offer us many, many voices. With computers, the internet, and cellular phone camera each of us can proclaim our truth where many look and listen. May each of use this ability with discernment.
