I pray for forbearance

I pray for forbearance, in the media and from the lawmakers, and in the stock market, and on the streets, as the new administration gets off to what is being called a rocky start.

I pray that the President, too, will not get discouraged and will be surrounded by intelligence and wisdom to guide and support him in his decisions.

I pray for the President's safety and that of his family, that they will be steered clear of danger and that God will allow them to work for their full term in this country, in our hearts and minds.

I pray for those who did not vote for Obama, that their hearts might be softened enough to see the good he can do to bring us together. To see how far we have come as a country and how much farther this means we can go, together.

  1. I pray for patience. I pray for tolerance. I pray that we keep praying.

    I read on CNN yesterday that there has been a rise in membership in white supremacy groups, the Ku Klux Klan, Aryan Nation, etc., since the election of Barack Obama. They cannot get stronger. We must. We must continue to pray after the first 100 days because a lot of people are not convinced that we have the right leader in Barack Obama. A lot of people are scared. A lot of people are stupid. Out of their fear and stupidity will grow a greater intolerance. Out of our prayers will grow a greater hope and OUR greater action to pull our nation together and up!

    Dear God, please protect Barack Obama. Dear God, please protect us.
