Praying for President Elect Obama

I will be praying for president elect Obama not just because we are commanded to pray for him in I Timothy 2.

I exhort therefore, that first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.

In addition I will be praying for him because I care about my future, my kids future, and the future of my country.  My prayer however, will be different than my prayer is for President Bush.  For Bush I prayed that he would strengthen legal immigration by stopping illegal, that he would treat Chinese Communists the same way he treats North Korean Communists, and that he would would not support socialism through welfare, deficit spending, and bailouts of failing companies. 

For Obama I will pray for a 180 degree turn in everything he stands for and plans to do.  If and until that happens I will pray that his purposes will be confounded, that his term will only be four years, and that Americans will see the mistake we made.
