Usually I manage to stay on the sidelines, watch races or elections with a favorite in mind, sometimes a clear favorite. I cast my vote, when I have a vote, then watch the outcome. Sometimes, however, I have a dog in the race, in the election, and it feels like I am praying bigger, for a particular outcome, even when I do not have a vote. This time I don*t. Still... I have a dog in this race. I have no idea if this is a faithful way to pray, or not.
