A Prayer for President and Mrs. Obama

For any of us who have ever lost a job, retired, or left the workforce for parenting, illness, or another job, the sudden change is often difficult.  It doesn’t have to be bad in order to be an abrupt departure from one’s prior activities.  Changes like this are often difficult to manage.  Therefore, I believe the Christian’s responsibility is to pray as President and Mrs. Obama experience this time of transition. 

We praise You, our Father in heaven, for the past eight years of President Obama’s leadership. You, O LORD, ordained it and we praise You.  We ask, LORD, that what has brought glory to You will yield a harvest of righteousness, fruit that will last and provide a happy legacy for President Obama. We ask, LORD, that President and Mrs. Obama will find a blessed rest and freedom away from the burdens of leadership, that they will find refreshment in their love for each other and their love for Malia and Sasha; and they will be able to easily acclimate to life outside of the White House.  Be with them, LORD, and lead them to deeper knowledge of You and may your Holy Spirit guide them to works of charity and goodness so that they will be a blessing to many.   Thank You, LORD, for President and Mrs. Obama’s service to this country and bless them in their future journey. Amen.
