Prayers for a New President

Especially since inauguration prayers have been much in the news lately there have been a number of prayers for the new President posted on the internet in various blogs that I frequent. A few have been poor, some have been fair, many of them have been very good, but this one is the best I have yet seen.

"Lord, our greatest desire is not that the economy would be righted, or that health care would be solved, or that the war in Iraq would be resolved. We want to see You glorified in whatever way you choose. Glorify Yourself through Barack Obama. We pray that four years from now more people would know and love you because Barack Obama was in office."

Yeah, we do need to be praying for our political leaders -- whether they want the Lord's hand or not.
