ADF's 6th week of prayer: Solicitor General gets the middle, lack-of-blessing square

by Jeremy Hooper

Those of you who have seen the past five weeks' sheets know how it goes: The first box, which always features someone from the anti-gay side, gets a blessing; the third square, which is always a Supreme Court justice, gets a largely neutral call for "wisdom and discernment"; the middle square, always someone on the side of LGBT equality, gets a prayer about "manifest[ing] goodness in his/her life" (because, you see, the goodness cannot possibly be there already).

Here's this week's take, with U.S. Solicitor General Donald Verilli getting that middle, "manifest goodness" slot.
