Last Tuesday was AJ’s 6th birthday. I had a phone call from my brother because a day before I was asking him some help. Then I told him that it’s AJ’s birthday. Then he immediately told me about Obama’s inauguration. Then I recalled what I had promised a month ago that during Obama’s inauguration I will join with others to pray for the new U.S.President. That I will say a prayer for him for God’s wisdom and direction as he leads the country.
After the call, I immediately say a prayer for peace and for the newly elected President to lead the country well and to be a good leader. It would be helpful if all believers will whisper a prayer to our leaders instead of saying words that will not edify.
Our leaders need us, to pray and intercede on their behalf that as they lead their own country the Lord will direct their steps. Hope we would always remember our leaders on this regard.
