Of course!

It was god's will that Bush serve two terms. Now he wants Obama in office for eight years.

Man, god should've written a better book. He had eternity to write it and the bible is the best he could come up with? He should just do a youtube instructional video or get a twitter page or something. Praying is so 6th Century.
God gives free will to everyone. He doesn't "orchestrate" who he gives it to.

Obama gave Navy seals orders to search for and kill bin Laden, didn't he? Wasn't there a mission specifically for that purpose? The Navy seals didn't just go over there because they decided to do it without an order from Obama.

FYI - yes, God gives us free will to decide what WE want to do, and additionally he gave Satan reign over the earth for now. But at some point God will intervene. That's what the Bible says.

Since Christians believe God uses the power of mother nature maybe he did want Obama to win. Look at the timing of Hurricane Sandy. Obama's handling of the disaster helped make up the minds of on the fence voters. Maybe God is fed up with the GOP using his name and deceiving the faithful to get political votes for their corrupt agendas.

Unquestionalbly. They all prayed for God to put the best man in office.

Their prayers were answered.

One thing for sure that the election showed is that most Americans believe in this Country.

Really?

How do you know this?

I mean the peace thing - sure. But I don't really think that god cares about bill paying, etc.

Hey maybe god wants us humans to implode and give the planet back to the bacteria.

God had nothing to do with it! Blame it on the political immature youths of our time and of the minorities nation wide brainwashed by the Obama manipulative mean political machine! They did a fine job in destroying the political election system and democracy for what it stood for, honesty, common decency, common sense which I saw or heard none of that before and during the election process! This will go down in the American history books as shameful let alone embarrassing to the world!
