May God bless our very soon-to-be President, Barack Obama. May God forgive him of his failings and bless him for those good things he does. May God uphold him when he is right and may God convert his heart and mind where he is wrong. May God grant him many years.

May the Lord God bless President Obama. May He lead him into salvation and truth. May He bless the President and his administration in those endeavors which are good and thwart those endeavors which are evil. Let us pray for him daily that the Lord will lead Him and that he accepts the Lord's leadership for our nation.

[b]Pope Benedict XVI has sent a telegram to incoming US President Barack Obama [/p]

Here is the full text of the Pope's message:

Quote
On the occasion of your inauguration as the 44th President of the United States of America I offer cordial good wishes, together with the assurance of my prayers that almighty God will grant you unfailing wisdom and strength in the exercise of your high responsibilities. Under your leadership may the American people continue to find in their religious and political heritage the spiritual values and ethical principles needed to cooperate in the building of a truly just and free society, marked by respect for the dignity, equality and rights of each of its members, especially the poor, the outcast, and those who have no voice. At a time when so many of our brothers and sisters throughout the world yearn for liberation from the scourge of poverty, hunger, and violence I pray that you will be confirmed in your resolve to promote understanding, cooperation, and peace among the nations, so that all may share in the banquet of life which God wills to set for the whole human family (cf. Isaiah 25:6-7). Upon you and your family, and upon all the American people, I willingly invoke the Lord’s blessings of joy and peace.

From the Holy Father to President Obama:

"...American people continue to find in their religious and political heritage the spiritual values and ethical principles needed to cooperate in the building of a truly just and free society, marked by respect for the dignity, equality and rights of each of its members, especially the poor, the outcast, and those who have no voice."

May the words of our holy father Benedict become our command!

Lord - please -- be merciful to us.

My prayers for the new president and his family. May he be given the wisdom, grace, and courage to make good and right decisions on behalf of this nation.

Also, praying for the vice president, cabinet members, legistators, and members of the Supreme Court..help them, Lord, to have wisdom..do justice...and walk in righteousness.

Lord, have mercy!
Christ have mercy!
