Pray for the president

At last Thursday's National Day of Prayer noontime observance in downtown Ketchum, a passerby told me that President Obama had decided to not sign a National Day of Prayer proclamation. I am sorry to admit that I believed him and reported that to those in attendance. I am very pleased to say that the president did in fact sign a National Day of Prayer proclamation later that afternoon.

Our president has arguably the toughest job in the world, and he deserves our support, encouragement and prayers, whether we agree with him on everything or not.

The Bible tells us, "I urge you, first of all, to pray for all people. Ask God to help them; intercede on their behalf, and give thanks for them. Pray this way for ... all who are in authority so that we can live peaceful and quiet lives marked by godliness and dignity."
