“Henry H. Sibley takes office as the state’s first governor. He served three times as territorial delegate to Congress, and with statehood imminent, he played a leading role in drafting the Minnesota constitution. He chose not to run for re-election as governor, but continued to serve the state as military commander during the Dakota War of 1862.” *
“Consequently, he who rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on them selves.” Romans 13:2
Jesus, thank you for the leadership of Henry Sibley. Thank you that he had foresight to draft a constitution for the state. Lord, will You forgive the bitter judgments of his term, and those made of him? Starting with Sibley, will You retrain us to honor or leaders in our heart, bring our dissonance with them to You, and not merely show respect externally?

Hi there, I have nominated you for the one lovely blog award. http://themeekchic.com/2015/10/06/one-lovely-blog-award/
Why thank you! Truly appreciate the good word!
I like the idea of praying through history! We live in a fast flowing stream and do not create our own moments without the context of the yesterdays that have led to today.
When it comes down to it, all our now is formed by memory even if but a split second. I’m not looking to dig up bones, but just be real with you the Father and admit “yes, we broke the cookie jar.”
