“Your husband gets excited when he prays”

An LDS wife and her family attended this past Sunday morning at our church.  And she just made this remark to my wife here at the house a couple hours ago.

Yes, I do get passionate!

But I don’t even come close to the passion of Isaiah’s prayer in Isaiah 63:15-Isaiah 64.

He is telling God that all of the righteousnesses of his people are nothing more than a pile of blood-stained menstrual rags.

I know we are in the midst of a big rock star celebration with the ongoing National Democratic Convention in Denver.

But I am not celebrating.  What does God think of America’s “righteousnesses” in 2008?
