House speaker calls divine audible

January 20, 2012|By Michael Dresser, The Baltimore Sun

When the delegate scheduled to give the customary prayer at the beginning of the House of Delegates' floor session Friday didn't show up in time, House Speaker Michael E. Busch filled in with one of the most succinct devotionals on record. It was particularly appropriate in a House chamber packed with purple-clad Ravens fans.

"Give us the ability to go straight forward and do your will. Amen." End of prayer.
