I didn't, until I heard about it on the radio while I was driving to get the kids yesterday.
I've read so many blog posts over the past couple of days expressing a wide range of emotions. Some are so excited about this era we seemed to have stepped into as a country. Some are devastated that we've elected someone to the highest office with such polar-opposite view as their own.
But the common thread that I seem to see in almost every post and comment string is a call to pray for our nation. For our President Elect. People reminding others that no matter who serves as the President of the United States, God Almighty is ultimately in control. He is not surprised by this election.
KatyLin wrote a great post about this. You should check it out. It prompted me to check my attitude and take a step of faith - so I joined the Presidential Prayer Team. We can't change what's happened, nor should we try to. Our duty as Christ followers (and privilege) is to lift up our President and place him at the throne of God.
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.
