This year, pray for a safe society so America can fulfill its potential

A new year has arrived and with it much possibility. I resist making predictions for 2014 -- I'll leave that kind of wizardry to television commentators -- but people tend to be skeptical and even cynical about the future. Why is it easier to imagine 100 ways something can go wrong? The new year offers us an opportunity to pray that God will strengthen our resolve to believe that life does and will get better for us.
