President Obama met with the Dalai Lama earlier today in the Map Room, and now he is across the map right here in Las Vegas! That's right, Mr. Obama is in Las Vegas today on a beautiful clear Nevada day. He is attending a DNC fundraising dinner at a private, undisclosed home.
It is always a great reminder that, as Christians, we are to be praying for the people in leadership over our nation, including our President. The Bible says, "I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone - for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth" (1 Timothy 2:1-4).
Whether we are a Democrat or a Republican, we need to pray for our nation's leaders. We might not agree with them on every issue, for God is the One we must obey and agree with first and foremost. However, we must love and pray for them.
God bless the U.S.A. Jesus loves you! Have you accepted God's gift of salvation for you?
