Pray for U.S. federal government workers on furlough

So many thousands of U.S. federal government workers on furlough due to the shutdown.  They are going without pay, and many are having problems paying bills.  At this point, it’s easy to pin the blame on either side. There are both Republican and Democratic supporters on furlough and nobody likes it.  It’s sad seeing people arguing over politics and blaming this and that party, the President and Representives.

Lord God, be with the families who are struggling with payments, bills and groceries. Give them a way out to overcome their financial challenges.
