Happy Tuesday...and Happy Inauguration Day!! If you have followed my blog or know me even just a little bit, you undoubtedly know that the Obama/Biden ticket was not the one I supported during our election. No, I did not support Obama. However, he is now the president of our country and I truly believe as a Christian American citizen, I must now support President Obama. (Is that easy for me to say....not really, but I do believe it is true.) By supporting my president - as Scripture tells me to do - I also support this country.
I love my country.....and it is, indeed, in need of support and the best thing I can do for this nation is pray. Often I am overwhelmed with the needs of our nation. Can my prayers really make a difference? No doubt Nehemiah felt much the same way when he saw the need in Jerusalem; however, God used his humble heart and willing spirit to, indeed, make a difference - Nehemiah rebuilt Jerusalem's wall in only 52 days! It all began with a prayer in Nehemiah 1. As Christians, lets commit to pray - not only for our country but for our new president, vice president and those he puts into office with him.
Truly.....God bless America!!

  3. Jennifer,

    I totally agree with you...could not have said it better! We are a blessed people, but with that blessing comes responsibility. I am committing to pray for our new leadership every day. May God continue to bless America!

  5. oh boy. i can't even bring myself to say i will support him. i can't get those words to cross my lips yet. i'm still in the " let's pretend he doesn't exist" moment. i love this country very much and i think that's why it's so hard for me to accept it still.
