Nine prayers for voters - Canadian Econoview

The Daily Telegraph (registration required) reported, just before the recent British election, that the Church of England had produced a series of nine prayers for the use of voters looking for divine guidance in the voting booth. As the Telegraph puts it, these prayers "help explain why the Church of England is no longer referred to as "the Tory Party at prayer"."
Read the read of Canadian Econoview's post (click the headline of this post) where he quotes some of the prayers. You'll see why he headlined his post "But were their prayers answered?"

By the way, the above -- ?" -- is a good example of how the American system of putting the close-quote outside the terminal punction of a sentence makes sense in some case. But in generally I say, "the British system is better".
