Thoughts & Prayers For President, His Family

Barack Obama

Apologies to those of you who don’t visit the Beliefnet site for politics, as I am going to wade into the subject again.

This time to offer my thoughts and prayers for President Obama and his family.

Although the president appeared by many to be disinterested and disconnected in the first debate with Mitt Romney he just looked exhausted and on ‘E’ by the end of the third.


It’s not a knock, but rather just the reality of entering the position when a worldwide economic crisis struck and ending a four-year term with foreign policy “challenges” that seem to be getting more difficult and controversial by the day.

To maintain and grow in a marriage and as a father during this time must have been extraordinarily hard, so he deserves our thoughts and prayers in his work and life.

If he loses the election, I hope he can enjoy his post-presidential life with Michelle and his two wonderful daughters. If Obama wins again, here’s hoping he has the courage and strength to lead this great nation!

Obama jeopardizes my husbands job and wants to control EPA…He is in agreement with abortion,and wants to turn our great country into a socialist country.What do we really know about this man? Beware of wolves in sheep’s clothing!!!No matter who becomes president, Jesus is still King!

unfortunately Lori, many leaders today don’t have Godly principles but aren’t there ways we all behave that are at times unGodly? I’m not a supporter of his but he’s still the president …

Does anybody know a Christian website which demonstrates Christian values only. As my believes and Obama don’t mix I will unsubscribe from beliefnet.

We have a president who believes in a government of the people, by the people and for the people and I hope he continues to lead us!

Mr. President, I am praying for you and your faily. I truly think that you are doing a good job, you had a lot dumped on you when you took office in 2008. The Bible says to pray without ceasing. i,m praying that you will be relected because only you and the grace of God can take this country Forward.People need to be more informed about Mitt Romney, if he gets elected God help us.

I almost unsubscribed Beliefnet after comments about Joy Behar. There is just simply no time now for people to judge or be unkind.

There is only this moment to reveal what defines each of us. And it’s either loving or it’s not.

I love and bless both candidates and trust that whatever happens does so for the highest good of all!

I’m not a Christian but I have certainty that Jesus would not judge, berate or postulate.

How you do anything is how you do everything. Best to start loving, forgiving and being kind NOW.

i pray for all of us to show gratitude for our many blessings and patience with the efforts made by our president to recover from the economic shambles he inherited. It took MANY MORE Years THAN FOUR for the country to come out of the depression in the 1930’s. The population reelected FDR so he had an opportunity to work his programs — and the country survived and did well!

The headline is scary enough. Are you praying TO the president? That is SO wrong.
I hope to see something very soon in which you pray FOR Gov. Romney. Maybe the day after that you could offer a prayer for the several other candidates for our nation’s highest office.

I will also be unsubscribing. This was a classless attempt at politicizing. Of course we should pray for our leaders. But this election is also about electing president with godly principles. I am very dissappointed in your cheap trick but I’m glad I know how you are so I can quit getting your propaganda

Beliefnet, you wrote:

Shame on you Beliefnet for praising the Pretender-in-Chief and hoping for four more years of his lies!

Pray for him? You’ve got to be kidding. He hates America. Why should I pray for a Muslim?

Are you serious….I mistook this site as a spiritual, Christian based site. Obviously I was mistaken. I will be unsubscribing now. That you could back a man whose values have no moral, or Christian basis…I am apalled.
