Congratulations to Mr. Obama for his victory in the electoral college selections. While we are starkly opposed in the political arena, now that he has been sworn in as the 44th President of the United States, he deserves not only a peaceful and orderly transfer of power (which the Bush White House has assured), but a degree of respect and loyalty from all Americans.

Hail to the Chief!

I will pray for the President regularly; for him to be a servant of the will of God Almighty, and that the gospel of Christ will reach more hearts because of his service.

Despite that he’s already made promises to the contrary, I will pray that he finds success in protecting our prosperity and security without sacrificing the integrity of the law or individual sovereignty.

Finally, I will pray that America will make the best of the circumstances of his election and find greater unity and have our eyes opened to the beauty of the old republic and how much of it has been lost.
