President Obama

Or as Kennedy says Rock Obama. I have posted before about President Obama. I stated it doesn't matter what you think about him but if you are a Christian it is your responsibility to pray for him. He has been left a mess. A huge mess. One of the biggest messes I can remember. President Obama along with the rest of our people in government need our prayers everyday.
As I was watching the inauguration the one thing I kept hearing was "he will need to get us out of this or that." I hope the people of the United States and the rest of the world remember Pres. Obama is a man. A mortal man. He is not God. The fact is this, it is going too take all of us working together to get out of this mess and that will only happen if we turn to God.
I was fortunate enough to be raised in a time when you got a tear in your eye or a lump in your throat when you heard the Pledge of Allegiance or the Star Spangle Banner, when a new President was sworn into office and it didn't matter if you liked who was voted in or not you respected the position. I was raised when prayer in school and before games were a given. Some in America have asked God to leave our public and government offices and our schools and it seems He has. Things keep going down hill, now look at the mess we are in. The cool thing about God is all we have to do is ask Him back and He will be there in a heartbeat. We are suffering the consequences of greed, self entitlement, political correctness and the me syndrome.
It is what it is.
I do not judge a person by their name, religion, color or beliefs. Actually I try (not always succeeding sad too say) not to judge a person at all. Sadly a lot of Christians have judged President Obama. My friends he does not need our judgement he needs our prayers. I loved both prayers said yesterday at the inauguration. When you pray for our President pray for safety for him and his family, pray for wisdom, discernment,strength and calmness.Pray that he will turn to the one who created us. He has been handed a lot but as it is spoken in the bible "All things are possible with God."
