LET US PRAY: Eternal Father God, we thank You for this day of change. Lord God, we thank You for all who have given their lives, shared their dreams and remained faithful to Your will and Word to make this day possible. O' heavenly Father, on this day we ask that You hear our prayers of intercession on behalf of our divinely appointed leader Barack Hussein Obama, his wife Michelle and their two daughters Malia and Sasha. Father in heaven dispatch Your angels from on high to surround him with a hedge of protection as he goes forth with audacious boldness to swing the sword of change cutting away the sameness of the past. Let this day inspire all who admire his tenacity, resolve and integrity to make the individual changes in their lives necessary for us to see the collective change we desire. Move the people of this great nation to become world changers that lead by example. Father God, we ask that You remove the plaque of bitterness and resentment from the hardened hearts of those that continue to backbite and speak against the leader that You, and You alone have appointed. Replace that vile discontent with a renewed heart and mind, repurposed for the betterment of humanity. Guide all of our leaders - democratic, independent and republican - local, regional, national and global in their decision making. Indwell them with the transformational power of the Holy Spirit. Let Your love shine as a beacon of hope, peace and deliverance in the Name that is above all Names our Lord and Savior, Yahushua (Isa/Jesus) Christ, amen, amen, amen!!!
Beloved, this is truly the day that the Lord has made. A day when a man of vision who was given the cross of bearing the burden of change can now stand in the crosshairs of history and proclaim, "Change has come. Change has come. Thank God Almighty, Change has come." I am proud to be an American. I am proud to see that our country which has a storied heritage of hate and divisiveness has come together to not just ask for, but rather to implement change. Each of us should rejoice on this day, but let us not lose sight of the long road ahead.
Change is a process.
It comes at a price. As we each go about this day celebrating and rejoicing, let us remember that this change requires our individual participation. Let us not be remiss in taking personal responsibility for ourselves, families, communities and nation. Change has come to inspire us to never settle for being the same again.
To my 1st family...
Brother Barack, I keep you and your family in my prayers. I cannot begin to know what the road ahead has prepared for you, but I am thankful that God has raised you up in these darkened times as a beacon of inspiration for this generation. Trying to convey my feelings with mere words doesn't begin to do justice to the sense of urgency I personally feel in my life to truly make change a mantra for not just me, but everyone around me. Thank you for leading by example. Thank you for being a man in a time of maleness. Thank you for simply showing what is possible when you hold true to your convictions and belief in God. May God's favor continue to be upon you.
Sister Michelle, I am so overjoyed that you stand beside, behind and when necessary in front of your man. You truly have become the template for me in terms of the types of woman I aspire to be worthy of to call my helpmeet. My prayers are with you, and I personally am ready to do all that God calls me to do to ensure that you and your family can continue to prosper and inspire this nation by your everyday examples. I am proud to see a woman of such regal grace, class and complexity simply rejoice in being fearfully and wonderfully made. Thank you for being the new 'Ruth' (smile) for me, may Father's favor continue to be upon you.
Sisters Malia and Sasha, thank you for sharing your parents with us. I pray that you both continue to smile, laugh and enjoy life simply being two little girls whose dad has an important job. I lift you both up in prayer each day asking God to continue to instruct you in His precepts and principles so that you grow into women of virtue. I am proud of each of you and thank you for being examples of healthy, loving children loyal to their parents. May God's favor and praises be continually in your mouths.
CHANGE HAS COME!!!
