Presidents and Prayer

In just one day, my country will have a new president.

Tomorrow, January 20, 2009, Barack Obama will be sworn in as the 44th president of the United States of America.

The IDDBlog has never been a political blog and likely never will be. Why then, am I posting about this today?

Because I think there is something that we Christians need to be doing.

Whatever we think of President Obama's politics or promises in how he will lead this nation, whether we voted for him or not, there is one thing that we all should commit to:

praying for him.

Whatever your political views, pray that God would grant him wisdom. Pray that God would direct him to turn to God to seek wisdom.

Tomorrow, I will be at work during the inauguration.

But I will be praying.

Good post. God didn't say to pray only for the godly leaders but for all in authority. Thanks for reminding us.
