"Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD,
the people he chose for his inheritance." Psalm 33:12
It's July. Our 2010 is half over, and we plunge head-first into the second half of the year. Wow! Have you been praying for our president? Boy, does he need it. It's been a rough year for this country, everyone is just looking to pull out of recession, and it seems one thing after another prevents it from happening fully. We need to continue to pray for President Obama, that he would turn to God in our country's time of need. We need to pray that he would seek Godly wisdom, and would seek advice from Godly men and women. Proverbs tells us straight out to seek counsel in our times of need.
"The way of a fool seems right to him,
but a wise man listens to advice." Proverbs 12:15
May President Obama listen to advice that comes from God. And may God also continue to protect him and his family. May God surround that family with His angels of protection, and may the enemy be thwarted in any plot to cause destruction or harm to that family. But mostly, I just pray that the Obama family will find the love of God. May they discover the truth and learn to love Him with all their hearts, and then take that love and use it to guide this nation in the right direction.
Perhaps most importantly though, it is my prayer this morning that people will pray. I pray that followers of Christ all over will realize just how important it is to pray for our president. I truly believe that as the people start to pray, as the people start to bend their knees and intercede on behalf of our country, that we'll start to see change that is good. We will start to see a difference and will know that our prayers are being heard. Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord. It's just time for us to talk to God about our concerns for our country- not just each other. It's time for us to thank Him for this beautiful nation and to ask Him to bless and guide us. God has all the answers we could possibly need to head in the right direction. Isn't it time we ask Him for those answers?
