This will be short since the last few have been so long (SMILE).
I just had something that I wanted to ask you all to join me in doing, if you don't mind. I wanted to ask you to pray for our country.
No matter what you think of President Elect Obama (if you're like me who is a supporter or if you're not) one thing I hope we can all agree upon is that we should cover him in prayer. He will be our leader and just as I have prayed for George Bush, I also know that it is important to pray for President Elect Obama as well.
Even at the much smaller level that I'm on, I know first hand the challenges that come along with being the first. I know how hard it is to run a company of 300 employees. So I can't even pretend to imagine what it must be like to govern a country. I'm sure he and his family must have endured and are still going through some really tough challenges. But if we pray for them, they will continue to endure.
So, today I have a simple request, and that is that we pray for our next President, his family, his wife and beautiful children. Pray for his protection and peace of mind. Pray for his strength to lead. Pray for his policies and his covering. Finally, pray for our great nation as he walks in what is no doubt his divine destiny.
I know a lot of you are very passionate about this, but I hope that we could lay aside our differences long enough to realize that we are all one country. We have got to come together for one common goal and that is to unite these United States so that we can reclaim our good standing in the world and be strong here at home once again.
