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.

“Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.” (Romans 13:1)
“I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone — for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.” (1 Timothy 2:1-4)
