President Obama won a tremendous victory, and one that was extremely hard fought, on November 6th. He now faces a number of real challenges that come with his second term. These are major problems which must be dealt with. Unfortunately some of them can’t wait for Inauguration Day. It will take a unified and bi-partisan effort on the part of all concerned in Washington to solve these problems. It is absolutely necessary for all of us to pray for the President and his family and for all members of the U.S. House and Senate.
When Sara and I watched the huge crowd in Chicago on election night we saw folks from all walks of life. We saw Americans — not just Democrats whose candidate had just won a very tough race. The faces in that crowd reflected what our country is all about. The United States is a diverse country and instead of dividing us, our diversity should be a good thing. President Obama had this to say about our diversity:
We are greater than the sum of our individual ambitions, and we remain more than a collection of red states and blue states. We are and forever will be the United States of America.
Now that the elections are over the American people have every right to expect the President and members of Congress to lead and act in a unified, bi-partisan and constructive manner. That doesn’t mean they must always agree, but it does mean that total cooperation on the big ticket issues is an absolute necessity. The first test will be the sequester issue, the so-called fiscal cliff, and it must be dealt with before year’s end. A long-term solution should be sought rather than a stop-gap measure that would only make matters worse. Putting the problem off to another day of crisis is not the answer.
Our prayer for America should be based on 2 Chronicles 7:14 which is a pretty simple approach, but one that’s critically important and it’s guaranteed to work. In addition to praying for the First Family, we must also pray for Gov. Romney and his family. Having lost an election myself, I know firsthand that prayers for that family are needed. I sincerely believe the next four years will be good ones for our nation and for all of our people. May God bless our nation!
