A New President to Pray For

2009 Five Presidents, President George W. Bush...

After 8 years a new era is dawning today in America. We come together to celebrate the passing of the torch to a new president regardless of who we voted for–it is an historic day on so many different levels.

After all the sights and sounds, the pomp, the parades, and the balls are all over– a new administration must pick up the ball and face a changing world that continues to bring us wars, economic problems, and natural disasters that no one is prepared for.

As the new president sits down for the first time in the oval office with the levers of power at his disposal, all the weight of that office will finally become apparent. As President Harry S. Truman put it: “The buck stops here.”

With two wars on the table and an unprecedented economic crisis continuing to unfold, the new president, Barack Obama, will have little time to celebrate. Expectations are running high and probably way beyond what any one man will probably be able to accomplish on his own– even with an able new administration at his side.

It is time to put aside our differences and petty partisanship and wish for the best–no– we need to pray that the new president is successful, our future depends upon it.

For 8 years I have been praying for George W. Bush–now Barack H. Obama will be in my daily prayers–so bless him and help him God. In Jesus name Amen.           *Top      (Cross-Published on ANSWERS For The Faith)

    I am in complete agreement with you. I pray for our President, whomever it is, on a regular basis. Yesterday I was saddened to read a blog asking people to pray for President Obama to fail. Needless to say, I am glad that have posted this request to pray for our new President.

    Thanks Valerie,
    I believe that it is not only sad that some would pray for the new president to fail, but also not Biblical–see:
    1 Timothy 2:1-4
