Unanswered Prayers

I just signed a petition to Save Darfur. It's a simple request. Or at least, this is what I pray. It's a reminder to President Bush to make peacekeeping effective. Of course, it seems that peacekeeping is not something that the present administration does effectively, if at all. But, I can still pray.

The petition asks for these prayerful petitions:

1. A strong mandate to protect civilians.
2. Management of the mission by the United Nations.
3. A sufficient level of troops and police drawn from around the world.
4. Mobile resources and equipment needed for quick response across Darfur's challenging terrain.
5. A strong emphasis on civilian and humanitarian needs.
6. Sufficient funding from the international community.

And then, the reply came from the White House. Too quickly, I might add. There isn't even a glimmer of hope that this message was read. It's just an automated reply, reading:

On behalf of President Bush, thank you for your correspondence.

We appreciate hearing your views and welcome your suggestions.

Due to the large volume of e-mail received, the White House cannot respond to every message.

Thank you again for taking the time to write.
