Sunday Faith Blog...pray for Obama
Thanks, Bob, and Amen...your take on Joplin is a wonderful reminder of a lot of things. Pray for our president, folks.......I had a friend pray for him once and she started with "...and we lift up President Obama..." and I chimed in at that moment with "...and we hope you keep him up there for a while.." but, really, the laugh is over and we should pray for him. Encouraged by one of his better mentors, T.D. Jakes, maybe things can start to CHANGE for this, God's land....real good change.
I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.
1 Timothy 2:1-4 KJV
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. Now mine eyes shall be open, and mine ears attent unto the prayer that is made in this place" (2 Chronicles 7:14-15).
Pray this Sunday, folks........it's not easy to pray for someone we distrust as much as most of us do Obama, but it does set your heart in a better place. And it can't hurt...you OR him. I promise.
Have a wonderful Sunday..
