Mr. Barack Obama
The President Elect
United States of America
P.O. Box 8102Chicago, IL 60680
Dear Mr. President Elect,
I am writing to you in response to your speech on the eve of your election as the 44th President of the United States of America. A great honor, a great moment in the history of this country and a moment I have prayed ardently for many months now. I had hoped the results would be different, but accept now that God’s will was for you to be the man of the hour in this historic moment in time. (Acts 17:26)
Mr. Obama, I am writing to you because my heart bursts with an exhortation for you and Mr. Biden, your Vice President Elect. Mr. Obama, please first learn from the history that has preceded you. As you make history, please honor history and do not subject us to the mistakes and shortcomings of those who have gone before you. President Hoover has much to teach you as he led this country in the greatest economic crisis of the last century. The Great Depression. Do not repeat his mistakes, and Mr. Obama – do not tax the wealthy. I am one of those middle class Americans who would not vote for you because of your tax plan – Michelle the Bible study teacher. It is destined to destroy us, not make us better. No one will benefit. Government must be smaller not larger. We need to stand on our own two feet, not on the coffers of the taxed and tried.
Learn from the fall of great civilizations built by great orators and philosophers like Aristotle and Plato, by Caesars who ruled in excess and Senates that ran amuck in the greatest republic that ever lived. Call this nation what it is Mr. Obama. Tell the truth from the White House as you promised and tell this nation we are a REPUBLIC, not a DEMOCRACY. We are ruled by law and not majority. Even your election was governed by the body politic and not the popular vote which is indeed too close to call. Greece and Rome fell because it persecuted Christians, slaughtered Jews and Christians alike and gave into the excesses of lust, greed and bloodthirst that came calling as entertainment. Our nation has been trending this way for too many years. You have a chance to be a different kind of President.
You said tonight, that you are my President, too. Even though I did not cast my vote in your favor, you are indeed my President. I wish to hold you to that promise, Mr. Obama. As my President, I expect you to be better than your words and trust more in the God who “sets up kings and deposes them.” (Daniel 2:21) If you desire to keep your place in this great office you will have to be better than your words and your promises. You will have to move away from the radical nature of your youth and the liberal policies you have promoted because you lead the greatest nation in the world and this nation will no longer stand for and tolerate mediocrity in its leadership. We will not settle for a President who leaves our borders unguarded and our people at risk. We will not settle for anything less than the best, and if you are the best then you must be honest.
I am praying for you Mr. Obama in these days leading up to your inauguration that you would be humble in heart, a DAVID like King David and wise like Solomon and Joseph. That you would appoint Esthers and Deborahs to your cabinet and as judges. That you would surround yourself with Samuels, Nathans and that you would not be a king in the legacy of Saul who abused his power and became so caught up in his own grandeur that he lost sight of the truth – that God had given him the power and God could take it away. You have a greater opportunity here, Mr. Obama than just being the first African-American President of the United States, you have the opportunity to be the President who is credited with truly returning this nation to its roots. Judeo-Christian roots that honored God from the opening session of the constitutional conventions to the inaugural invocations. Mr. Obama, I am a strong believer in Christ and I ask that you honor the faith and the Christ that you profess by honoring the Constitution that bears His truth woven into its very laws. Mr. Obama, restore honor and dignity to our White House and the most high office that you have now been elected to. Mr. Obama, please stand for unborn children who need a voice — you are now an advocate of irresponsible choices to kill off a generation of Americans in the name of Freedom. What of that baby’s right to live, to have a chance at life. My son, who was born to a 17 year old unwed mother, died three years ago at the age of 17 years. His life was and still is a blessing to me though I thought I would never be able to raise a baby and even contemplated abortion in a weaker moment – so many couples in this nation go to bed at night aching to hold a baby in their arms, but cannot find one to adopt. I never regretted choosing life for my baby.
Please Mr. Obama, impress upon this nation the truth about God and the reason for the more than 200 years of protection and prosperity we enjoyed until recent years – because this nation had the protection and favor of God. Israel forsook that favor and protection… And they went into Captivity for more than 400 years. They lived in captivity so long that when Jesus came along and pointed out their captivity to them they said, we have NEVER been slaves to anyone and we are not slaves now. We live in a nation enslaved to idols, Mr. Obama. And this government has done much to create those idols and destroy the greatness that was promised to its forefathers so many years ago. God has a plan for you, but you have to choose him to find it. I pray you do.
Mr. Obama you have a choice to make. Choose wisely. God offered Solomon anything he wanted, and Solomon asked for Wisdom. God will give you wisdom if you will seek His will and ask Him for it. I pray for the Spirit of God to baptize you and to anoint you for the days you will serve this great office of President. I will be praying for you, for the hearts of our people, and for God’s will to be done.
Mr. Obama, I believe we have become a godless nation, serving money and ambition and greed. We serve ourselves as a nation. I have told people throughout this election season that I feel sure that our nation will receive the President her heart has been crying out for. I thought, and pray tonight against, that you are the President of a people whose heart has turned hard and cold against God. The nation of Israel cried out for a King, and God wanted them to honor Him as King. But they cried out again for a king and so he gave them Saul. A reading of the book of 1 Samuel reveals the heart of a man who sought the approval of men and became more concerned for his own power and office than for the God who had granted him that position of favor. Turn the hearts of the people back to God and prove me wrong. Prove me wrong. I am praying for you, and will pray for you everyday of your Presidency. My God asked me if I was willing to respect you, a man I did not elect, as President. I committed myself to honor the office of President and the authority you will assume in that office. But, I pray you will be a man I can honor and respect because of his character as well as his office. I pray you will be better than your words. Congratulations on the history-making moment that you have enjoyed tonight. I pray for you, Mr. Biden and your families.
May God bless you, protect you and grant you wisdom and this nation peace.
Blessings from Texas.
