Since then, I hear this song, over and over in my head! But I don't know any more of the words. I should ask Taylor. I am sure she can sing every word.
But today, maybe we all need to be stuck on this phrase.
We are all in this together.
We are a GREAT country! Our forefathers gave us some wonderful democratic principles to govern by. Regardless of which party won, or which candidate succeeded, in January we will have a new president.
So, our task as Christian evangelicals, is to begin now praying for the new leader of our country. We must ask God to speak to his heart and give him wisdom and discernment. We must pray that President elect Obama will lead our country as God would have him to lead. We must pray for his family.
For the past eight years I have prayed for President and Mrs. Bush and their two daughters. I pledge to do the same for our new president.
I will pray that he knows Jesus Christ in a real and personal way. I will pray that he is an instrument of God's will for our nation and that he will continue our American legacy of protecting Israel.
I will fervently pray that President elect Obama will value the sacredness of human life, from conception to the grave. I will pray that he supports our troops and makes sure they have everything they need to keep our country safe.
Today is the first day of the rest of our lives. Let's agree together to put our differences aside and stand behind the leader of this great nation in fervent prayer and intercession. We owe it to our future president to pray for him. We owe it to our children and their children.
One of the beautiful things about our country is that we can disagree and still live and work side by side with respect and harmony.
So, for my friends who voted for Obama, I say, "Congratulations! Now, let's work together to keep America great."
To my friends who were McCain and Palin supporters, I say, "What can we do now to keep life sacred in the womb? Our job is not finished."
We ARE all in this together!
Blessings to all of you this beautiful day!
