Addressing a gathering that self-identified as 40% Democratic and 60% Republican (in terms of 2012 presidential preference):
President Obama has asked a select group of spiritual advisors to write daily devotions for him. He reads the Bible and prays every day. He wants to grow spiritually.
We are commanded by the Lord to pray for our leaders. So: (1) pray for his family (they mean the world to him); (2) pray for the most vulnerable ones in our society; and (3) all of us are totally inadequate for our work – President Obama is a man of deep humility, who realizes how much he needs the wisdom of God.
