I come to You today to ask you to watch over and bless President Barack Obama, your son, and the President of the United States of America. He is running for re-election, for another four years. He started a work here in our country, Father, but was not able to complete the good work he began. He needs more time, Lord. I believe his heart is in the right place, God, and that he loves you.
Despite so many of your followers claiming that he is a closeted Muslim and not a Christian, I’m sure that they are mistaken. I think he’s a good man that is attempting to do the best he can within the constraints he has. I know he loves you; I sense that he loves you. Help him to serve you better, Father, and help him to win this election, Lord, if it be thy will, in the holy name of Jesus.
He loves the poor, Father. He cares about the middle class. He cares about the people who are sick, old, weak, infirmed, disabled, and struggling. He cares about the least of us and has compassion. Michelle Obama, his wife, cares about those of us who struggle daily — the single moms, the young children who are stressed through no fault of their own. See his heart, oh Lord, and guide President Obama.
Father, there are things that need to change here. We need to reduce and stop abortion and help President Obama to see that we have to find policy that will reduce this horrific practice. Through education, we can reduce abortion except in cases of serious emergency. Help President Obama to become the godly man you want him to be in every facet of his life. Please help him, if you give him this next four years, to lead each one of us in America into a bipartisan way of dealing with one another. Help the president to get things done, according to your will, God. Help us not to have any more war. I know you have your hand on his life, Father, and I trust that all will go according to your plan on November 6.
Help those who are angry, who dislike and resent President Obama. Help them to accept that he needs more time and deserves another four years. Help them to begin to truly have compassion for those who have less than they do; help them to want to share what they have with others, so that none of us suffers. Help us all to learn to have a spirit like Jesus has. Jesus asked us to give and share everything we have. On earth, Jesus healed the sick and had compassion for the least among us. Help your people to recognize that people’s health matters more than their money. There is nothing more important than our lives, except you, God. Help them to see that loving money is not what God admires within our natures. Take away the greed, Heavenly Father, and bring back the compassion within the hearts of all Americans.
I turn this presidential election over to you, Father. I ask that you watch over and protect President Obama, and that you bring about your will regarding Governor Mitt Romney as well. I’m putting this matter into your hands now, Lord, and I will not take it back up again. I accept however this turns out and will glorify you no matter what occurs. Please allow nothing to stand in the way of your will, Father, because your will is always what is best for our country and the world. I ask you these things in the name of Jesus.
Thank you, Lord.
Your loving daughter,
