God wants us to pray for our new president elect

Posted on 11/04/2008 8:17:58 PM PST by Texas_shutterbug

Now is the time for all men and women of goodwill to commit to praying for the president elect. God is still in control. Maybe he has humbled us. Maybe he has decided that we are too proud, too selfish, too...whatever.

Yes, it's going to be hard, but this is a good test of our character. Will we respond with hatred, bitterness, and despair, or with the eternal hope that our God is in control?

We have a choice. If you don't think that God can use a man like Obama, then your God is much too small. Remember - God's timetable, not ours.

I hope to see prayers for Obama's safety. His children don't deserve to lose their father.

May God bless us all, and GOD BLESS AMERICA.

He is not my President. I will not pray for him.

I agree wholeheartedly. This is a time to applaud his accomplishment...it is historic. Policy disputes will come later, but I for one will pray for his safety this night.

If you start ‘em, I’ll join you in prayer in your posts for protection of America, and wisdom from God for our President.

No one is stronger than the Creator. And God is who we always, through good and bad times lean on.

Praise God! and Trust in God!

Although I'm disappointed, I will be praying for President-elect Obama.

I will pray he governs from the Center and that he will restrain the most radical of the Democrats.

I will pray that he exercises sound judgment in every decision he makes, domestic and foreign.

I will also pray that our nation's soil will be kept safe under his watch.

...But...I will also pray for GOP victory in 2010 and 2012.

There is no God. If there was, there never would have been an election between a socialist hell bent on destroying America and a Rino, hell bent on destroying the REpublican Party.

Or if there is a God, he just made the decision that man kind should go the way of the dinosaur.

I will never pray for that (expletive).

He has resorted to the devil’s play, and a part of him belongs to a religion that goes against mine. I will pray for the United States of America but not that POS.

Yes, we can and should pray for Obama, that he comes to a genuine saving, personal relationship with Jesus Christ; that he seek God’s wisdom only and always; that he learn the true meaning of compassion; and that God will remove him from office in favor of a ministry somewhere else. Kenya, perhaps.

You’re absolutely right. My prayers are with him, as scared as I am. But perhaps it’s selfish of me; praying for him makes me feel less afraid.

1 Timothy 2:1-2

Pray for All Men

1 Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, 2 for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence.

We may not like it but we are commanded by God. If you don't agree you can take it up with Him at a later date.

If Obama believed in God, he wouldn’t like that prayer...

How about pray for the rest of us and what Obama is going to us.

The only prayer I will say for him is that God changes his heart. But to pray for him would be to imply I am praying for his policies and views to become law of this land. And that I will never do. I do not pray harm upon the man. But I will not pray for a man who has made war against the preborn one of his top priorities. God would never forgive me that.

I’m sorry. I know I am supposed to pray for my enemies but I struggle with this all the time. God knows I do.

Here’s the deal. We are supposed to hate evil. I do think Obama is evil and not at all what he pretends to be.

All I can pray is that a miracle changes him (maybe like Saul/Paul) and he rejects all he has embraced throughout his life. I won’t be holding my breath though.

I think the foolish people of this country have bought into the Enemy’s trap. Like others have said, I will not claim him as my president.

While the Bible tells us to render unto Caesar, it does not tell us to become like him. I will spend much time teaching my grandchildren why this man, Barack Hussein Obama, is not to trusted or admired.

I wouldn't say He “did” this to humble us. We establish Man's law which is sometimes counter to God's law.

Look at the murder of 1 million babies a year through abortion in America.

We can pray for His mercy, that we don't get the punishments we deserve for making wrong choices (whether those be personal failings or errors in our choice of leadership).

Barack Obama claimed to be a Christian, although in a 2004 interview, he came off more as a secular humanist. He did not see Jesus to be the only way to salvation. He saw redemption in the different faiths of the world. He finds sin to be whatever goes against his value system. May he have a spiritual awakening as he sits in the leadership role of this great nation, established by men who sought to LIMIT the powers of government, and preserve the personal liberties of men.

I WANT Barack Obama to be spiritually awakened, and not look down on those who “cling to religion”. I want him to be humbled in the realization of something greater than himself or the institutions of man. There is no charity in forced taxation. For you to give to your fellow man in assistance should be a personal decision, one that you come to by free choice.

I pray that we DON'T experience a second “Carter” administration. I pray that Our Father shows us mercy. And if it leads some to be more humble and respectful (as we did in the aftermath of the 9-11), then there is a positive aspect to this election.

God is "using Obama," all right. He's using Obama to punish America for abortion and pornography, not only here but also spreading that dreck around the world.

We wanted power: we'll get weakness. We wanted wealth: we'll get poverty. We wanted comfort: we'll get pain.

Learn Spanish or Chinese or Arabic. Your grandchildren will need it to speak to their masters.

After eight years of the most vicious hate and rhetoric from Democrats and especially the lowball tactics from this George Soros puppet and the vile I’ve put up with from canvassers and others, he and his treasonous party don’t deserve my goodwill, or my prayers.

My tagline says it all.
