Dear President Obama,
I pray that in your moment of silence today that you reflected on the events of this tragic day in history. I pray that when you closed your eyes, you were taken away from your hectic day for just a moment to pause and become reflective of what happened on this day thirteen years ago. I know you have a lot on your plate, but I pray that you in your humanness would place yourself in the shoes of those who have lost loved ones and be in their pain with them. I pray that this will bring to your remembrance the reality of evil and the terrorist organizations that seek to destroy our country and its allies. I pray that God shows you the faces of those victims and reminds you that He has placed you in this position of authority. I pray that God humbles you today and shows you the vast capacity of your awesome responsibility, and I pray that you use your position of leadership to glorify Jesus.
We implore you to listen to God in all matters and be the leader that God created you to be. We pray that you put aside all politics and self-interest and listen to the Holy one, Jesus Christ alone. I pray that you meditate on His scriptures and spend time in His presence. And I pray that the memory alone of the thousands of people who were burned alive or forced to jump to their death on this very day will lead you to God’s wisdom to take the appropriate action against the evil empires of this world.
Mr. President, please don’t sit back. Please don’t debate over what’s best for your agenda, but seek first the Kingdom of God. Don’t let there be another Holocaust or genocide. You have been chosen to lead this mighty nation and we pray that you will allow God to use you in a mighty way. You through our awesome God have the ability to change the world. Seek His face today. You are our President and we will continue to pray for your eternal wisdom in Him. May the Lord bless you and may His countenance be upon you.
