As a fully devoted follower of Christ, we have a responsibility to pray for the President of the United States. Therefore I encourage first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings(presidents) and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence.(1 Tim 2:1,2) Now is not the time to not pray for President Obama. If you think the last 4 yrs were bad, withhold our prayers now and things certainly won't get better. Our prayer does matter. What will I be praying for the President? I pray that he be filled with God's wisdom and understanding, that he have ability to surround himself with people filled with godly knowledge and understanding who can give him the right advice and that the fear of the Living God would rest upon Him. We have a difficult journey ahead and God is still on the thrown; His grace is sufficient!
