Legislators Prayer for the Press

May God give you the wisdom
To leave out my stumbling words
And just print the upright phrases
That may inspire.

Please God, guide the photographer
Away from my bald spot and
Instead let the camera capture
My pure and resolute heart.

God give me the grace to know
The slant of the liberal or
Right wing media but still
Keep my solid stance.

Even more God, let me not
Take pride in my name in a title
Or picture above the fold
Nor in a thousand “likes”.

God, help me know my speech
Is for this body, my colleagues
Not pandering to the few I know
Attending to the live feed.
