For the Upcoming Transition
« on: November 08, 2008, 07:47:49 PM »
FIRST:  ABSOLUTELY NO POLITICAL COMMENTARY TO BE POSTED ON THIS THREAD!!!  In keeping with the purposes of the Prayer Forum, this is to be a thread exclusively for prayer.

Have mercy, O Lord, upon our President George, our President-Elect Barack, and all in civil authority, and guide them as we prepare to transition from one administration to the next.  May they who will be held accountable for their governance of this land keep this land secure and in peace, that all Your people may live calm and ordered lives in Your sight, in true faith and prayer, with godly deeds.
Not all who wander are lost.

Lord have mercy on Your servants- the citizens of the United States and their Government. 
If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

Lord have mercy on all those in civil authority, especially on President George Bush and President-elect Barack Obama.

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Lord Have Mercy!
Excellence of character, then, is a state concerned with choice, lying in a mean relative to us, this being determined by reason and in the way in which the man of practical wisdom would determine it. Now it is a mean between two vices, that which depends on excess and that which depends on defect.
