New Day...New President

Today I woke up knowing that things will change. Praying things will change for the better.

Today, is a historic day. Today we have a new President...President Obama our 44th President.

It doesn't matter if you voted for President Obama or not. What matters now is that we are called to pray for our leaders. I am determined to extend my prayer life beyond myself, my family which is what I focus on most. Lord forgive my selfishness. I do pray for friends, friends of friends, others, our country, the military, church, etc. just not on a daily or consistent basis.

This year one of my goals is to make a prayer notebook. To have sections for prayer requests. Some of the sections will include family, church, friends, leaders of our country, etc. I will also leave room to show how the Lord worked in each situation I prayed for...I am expecting great things for 2009!

I am grateful to live in such a great country. I am thankful for all the sacrifices that have been made and are still being made to make this a free country. I am thankful that my dad and my husband both served in the military for their country.

As the day unfolds will you take a moment and please say a prayer for our new leader. Please pray for our country. God Bless America!

I will for sure. It has been an odd day for me as far as emotional wise. In a way I am anxious for change but on the other hand I am scared for what he stands for on some issues. Have a great day!
