My friend, Carole wrote an excellent post on her blog.
Everyone should read it.
No matter how you feel, personally, about the outcome of this election, we should ALL be praying for our new leader.
For me, I feel an intriguing hope...
While I opposed Obama on SEVERAL issues (abortion, taxes, health care...), I do NOT think he is the anti-Christ.
I am not in a panic nor am I dismayed.
But I am praying!
I pray to God to give our new President wisdom and guidance, discernment and discretion.
I pray that our new President will unite this country as never before... that he will bring healing to race relations that have borne the anger and hostility from generations of abuse and prejudice.
I pray that our new President will give hope to American children of EVERY heritage (Asian, Hispanic, African, European, Persian, etc) that they, too, could one day rise to the office of
President of the United States.
I pray that our new President will once more restore this great nation's good name and reputation with the rest of the world, and that he will do so not by subservience to un-American ideologies, but through good example & noble intent.
I believe a new day is dawning in our great country & it is a day that no Christian should fear.
Our God still sits on His throne & He is still in control. We have only to do as we have been commanded:
"I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth." -- 1 Timothy 2: 1-4 NIV
God Bless the USA.
