We Humbly Pray ...

DadToCherubs and I cast our votes on Election Day, and were overruled by our fellow countrymen.
And today, as we watched the Inauguration, our whole family humbly prayed together ....
* Photos taken from various online news websites *

... that God grant President Obama and Vice-President Biden the much needed wisdom, courage, and integrity they will need during the days to come ... that Our Lord guide our nation and our elected leaders to every appropriate step of this journey, throughout this challenging period in our history ... that Our Father protect and guide President Obama, Vice-President Biden, and their families, along with those persons which President Obama selected to serve our great nation beside him.

* * *
Today we are once again blessed to be citizens of the United States of America. We lift our new government leaders into God Almighty's Hands. Above all, we know that God is in control, and it is that knowledge that gives us hope !

We sat this morning to watch (live via television) as our 44th President was sworn in ... a peaceful process unique to our nation, steeped so deeply in history and tradition, and yet ground-breaking today especially.

* * *
We thank God for President Obama's willing commitment to serve our great nation during these difficult hours ... and we commit to covering this administration in prayer throughout their terms of office. We commit our President to Our Heavenly Father.
* * *
We ask that you join us in praying for our nation,
and for all of our new government officials.

Hi Becky. I spotted you on the RC Yahoo group. I just joined. Wondering where in the SE you are located as your recent temps & snowfall sure look like it is here in East TN.
