The three top headlines from the Drudge Report this morning:
If you are a Christian you have a responsibility:
I urge you, first of all, to pray for all people. As you make your requests, plead for God’s mercy upon them, and give thanks. Pray this way for kings and all others who are in authority, so that we can live in peace and quietness, in godliness and dignity. This is good and pleases God our Savior, for he wants everyone to be saved and to understand the truth. (1 Timothy 2:1-4 NLT)
A prayer for our President:
Strong God, we pray that today you will grant our leader wisdom, courage, and strength. Our enemies are rising up against us. They hate what we represent. They want to destroy us. They want to harm people all around the world. It could be that the one force that stops all of this is our nation, and the leadership of that nation rests largely on the shoulders of one man, President Barack Obama. God, break through partisanship, ideologies, and self-interests and give our leaders and our leader the best wisdom, unwavering courage, and towering strength as they and he lead our nation into the future.
And in all things Lord, may we honor you.
