Congratulations to President Elect Obama

It's an amazing thing for the member of a minority--a formerly enslaved minority--to reach the office of president! Whether or not you agree with our next president's politics or party, pray for him, for his safety, for wisdom, for him to be a just and godly leadership. And give thanks to our God for our country and the great privilege we have to participate in this process.

I urge you, first of all, to pray for all people. Ask God to help them; intercede on their behalf, and give thanks for them. Pray this way for kings and all who are in authority so that we can live peaceful and quiet lives marked by godliness and dignity. (1 Timothy 2:1-2)
