President Obama, Congratulations!

Dear Mr President,

Today, the history of the United States was forever changed--and for the better! The world is watching at this great democracy engages in the peaceful transition of governmental leaders and the accompanying powers.

Even though I did not vote for you, I will be praying for you. I will be asking God to keep His might hand, and His strong love around you all the time. You will need His help. And you have already acknowledged as much.

You have promised "Change we can believe in..." and now it's "show time" for you! You have nominated a great Cabinet, and you will now have the dreams, hopes, fears, burdens, and aspirations of this great nation upon your shoulders.

Just as your friend, Pastor Rick Warren, said in his prayer, " Almighty God, Everything we see and everything we can't see comes from You....You are the compassionate and merciful One.....we are so grateful to live in this land where the son of an African immigrant can rise to the highest level of power in this nation....Give our president the courage to lead us with integrity, and the compassion to lead us with generosity....when we forget You, forgive we face these difficult days us to share, to serve, and to seek the common good of all..."

Mr President, that was a powerful prayer. I am confident the Lord God heard it.

You are bringing hope and encouragement to this great nation. We honor you.

God bless you!
