..in prayer today as I pray for MY President and MY country.This is a positive thread only,please! I am SO tired of hearing put-downs and name-calling etc to this administration ...and to our country...because we ARE in effect putting down our own soil when we do that.Jesus commanded we PRAY for those whom we perceive to be our enemy (I don't perceive it that way but to each his own).While it was fine for Jesus to call out others,OUR job is to PRAY about it.
SO PLEASE,NO more tearing down our country with the lies (like the Pres. Obama birth cert. 'issue'),the slander and the gossip,(at least for this thread only.I'm not on a power trip.)The bible has a lot to say about gossip,(don't believe me?try reading it sometime. )
I see no reason why we shouldn't give basic respect to both (our country and our President),whether you feel it is deserved or not.They do go hand -in- hand.IMO ppl who claim to be Godly really put their credibility on the line when they do otherwise.(like having a particular political agenda in mind).
BTW IF you think we're truly living in a storybook or a play,where the end has already been written and we know the outcome...then I see no reason for all the uproar.WE can't change anything.GOD is in control,HE always has an always will be.IF you truly think our President is evil,then it would appear he's just playing his role (in end times),much like Pontious Pilot did.'For all of your days were written in My book,before one of them came to be'.So then praise God for that.HE is the author of life.
Today I wish to pray for MY President and MY country.I challenge you to do the same.

AMEN.

just to add a few thoughts(I got these from fathersloveletter.com).
So it appears God has ordained our President's days,too.Not just yours and mine,not just yours and the rest of the Christians in the world...but EVERYONE'S days:
