One week from today is Inauguration Day when our new president will be sworn into office. Max Lucado (pastor and author) is leading an effort calling people to pray for President-Elect Barack Obama on Inauguration Day (January 20, 2009).
As the site points out, 1 Timothy 2.2 says …
Pray for rulers and for all who have authority so that we can have quiet and peaceful lives full of worship and respect for God.
These uncertain and challenging times certainly need strong and wise leadership. Let us pray for all of our world and national leaders, and especially Barack Obama as he becomes President of the United States, that he (and all leaders) will lead with wisdom, courage, and humility!
