Pray For Our Nation and Our President

In less than a week our new President-elect will officially take office. The new First Family is busy getting moved into the Whitehouse and choosing the new First Pet.

It is no longer a question of who you're going to vote for, but instead how you will respond to the winner of the election.

I would like to encourage us all to pray daily for our President and also all of our government leaders. There will be many crucial decisions made in the next four years and godly wisdom is needed to make those. I believe our nation is at a critical crossroads with rough roads ahead, but God is ultimately in control. If we are faithful to call out to Him, He will hear our prayers.

I have been doing the 77 days of prayer since the election and have signed up to pray on the 20th. I am going to be President Obama's little prayer warrior for the next four years. He is going to need the help and direction of our Father God to turn this mess around. No one is placed in a position of authority less God raised him. No matter how you voted this is the man God raised up for us at this time. Thank you for sharing.

I agree we must be in prayer for our President. The Lord has placed him there and he needs our prayers and support. If I ever believed we were in the last days it is now. I can remember back in the 50's hearing sermons that made me think He would return soon, but I am convinced we are living in some very special days. I have missed your post and I'm glad to be back posting and catching up again. luv ya,Trish
