Congratulations President Obama.

I pledge, to the best of my ability to respect the office of Presidency and President Obama.
I pledge that whenever I can be supportive, I will be.
I pledge to pray as long and hard for President Obama as I did for President Bush.

I am grateful to our God that I can cast my anxieties on him because he cares for me.
I pray for the hearts and lives of all American citizens to be drawn to God and convicted of their need for Jesus Christ. After Bush, I no longer believe that a president can make the difference in our nation - it is the people of God - who take God seriously or ignore him that will and ARE determining the future of our nation.

I pray that God uses and directs this new enthusiasm for our new President to bring about goodwill and peace - and the rift that has become so strong in the past several years, will be softened.

For so long a people have believed they were not represented. Bless them now as they ARE represented by the highest office in the world. Bless us all Lord with unequaled amounts of wisdom and mercy for each other.

I pray your blessings upon President Obama to bring about peace to the citizens of the United States.

In Jesus name, Amen.

How I wish I lived in a swing state

Maybe I wouldn't like it - because I imagine they are bombarded mercilessly with phone calls and people knocking on their door imploring them to vote a certain way. But I would know my vote counts. In California - it is an illusion. At least it seems so.
