Yesterday, at a PSUV (Socialist Party United for Venezuela) ideology workshop in which Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro participated, a prayer for the late Venezuelan leader, Hugo Chávez, was presented. The prayer is called “The Delegate’s Prayer” and is a modification of the Catholic prayer, 'Our Father.' It was recited after a few singers and poets dedicated their work to Hugo Chávez. Maduro gathered most of his cabinet for the closure event and pointed out that the revolution is in a stage where, “the formation of values is increasingly required.” He went on to say, “When we ask ourselves which values we should form and where we should form those values, there is a single answer: we should form those values in the streets, fighting every day, creating, constructing and making a revolution.”

To finalize the event, María Uribe read “The Delegate’s Prayer”: “Our Chávez, 
who art in Heaven, on earth, in the seas and in us, the delegates,
hallowed by Thy name, 
Thy kingdom come, 
Thy will be done 
on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, 
and forgive us our trespasses 
as we forgive those who trespass against us. 
And lead us not into the temptation of capitalism, but deliver us from the evil of oligarchy and contraband crime, because ours is this land, peace and life. Amén. Long Live Chávez.”

While Nicolás Maduro continues making efforts to mystify the late socialist leader, the opposition claims the President is exploiting the image of Hugo Chávez who founded the PSUV in 2008, to grow his own revolutionary following and maintain his popularity in addition to stability amongst his militants.
