District of Columbia in allowing same-sex marriage,
after Hawaii and Illinois passed similar laws last
"There are certain laws which judges, legislators, and
even the people cannot change. They are called natural
laws. The Declaration of Independence refers to these
laws as the "laws of nature and of nature's God." These

and please start Your work in me. Thank You for hearing
and answering my prayer. Gratefully, in Jesus' name,
