Prayer for President Obama

Gracious Heavenly Father, who has made a good world filled with beauty and the miraculous, be with President Barack Obama this day and in the difficult days ahead, that, protected by your hand and guided by your Spirit, he might lead this imperfect nation and this broken world into a time of peace and sharing, where conversation replaces violence, where celebration replaces poverty, and where love replaces hate; make him your man in this world; give him zeal to serve "the least of these"; protect his family from all harm; lead him always on your holy path; and through his work, prosper your people and your creation, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
