Day After Election Post Preview

I will be publishing one of the following posts on Wednesday morning after Tuesday’s election. Which do you think it will be? 🙂

Post #1: Congratulations Senator Barack Obama!

Congratulations, Senator Obama! You ran a long and strenuous campaign, and you have now won the 2008 Presidential Election. You were not my candidate of choice, and I strongly disagree with many if not most of your policies. However, you are the duly-elected next President of the United States. Therefore, I will give you the full honor and respect due your position and pray for you accordingly. At the same time I will continue to work and vote for those policies I believe are best as is my right and duty in a representative government. I wish you all the best and will be praying for you and your family.

Post #2: Congratulations Senator John McCain!

Congratulations, Senator McCain! You persevered and defied all odds to win the 2008 Presidential Election in what should have been a Democratic year. I have had my problems with you in the past and did not vote for you in the primaries. However, I did vote for you on Tuesday as I felt you would do a better job as President than your opponents. I voted for you hoping that you will defend the rights of the unborn, cut government spending, protect our country during dangerous times, and appoint conservative judges to the bench. I trust you will fulfill these promises under which you campaigned and received my vote. I wish you all the best and will be praying for you and your family.

    I think it will be McCain. Really. There will be a lot of shock, maybe some re-counts…but I think it will be McCain. We shall see! Either way, I will also pray for our president and treat the office with respect. I really hate it when people are disrespectful.

    Sadly, I suspect it will be Obama. I do not look forward to a one-party government, but I fear that will be the outcome.

    The key words here are “prayer” and “respect”. As Christians it is our duty to do both, regardless of whether we get our own personal choice for President. Christians are praying for God’s will to be done. So it is likewise our duty to accept whoever wins this race. Both candidates have given incredible time and energy to this campaign. May I suggest, we also should be praying for the one who loses? A tough finale after a 2-year effort.

    Thanks for this post, Ray, and for reminding us of how we as Christians should respond, whichever way it goes.

    I have to agree with John Wheaton. Key optimal word used “sadly”. What a thrilling upset it would be if McCain wins. One can only pray that that IS God’s plan.

    I just hope that God continues to give us His Mercy. God, please bless America and our next president, whomever that may be.
