A Prayer for Obama...from DuBois

After witnessing another milestone for Senator Barack Obama in the South Carolina primary, I felt that the words of the great scholar activist, William Edward Burghardt DuBois, spoke to Obama's current circumstances and the road that lays ahead. May God with with us all.

"God bless the wanders--they that seek and seldom find and yet all ceaselessly do seek some Truer, Better Thing--some fairer country. These are they, O Lord, who open up the hidden ways of earth and men: for the way of the wanderer is wide and winding, his soul hungers after God--always are his paths weary and without end. Yet we feel his kinship to us all, we glory in his findings, we enter into his heritage. God save his soul tonight wherever he may be and give our yearning following spirits Peace. Amen."

W.E.B. DuBois,
Prayers for Dark People, p. 38
