Where is the priority?

I am proud of our country. I am proud that it seems that we have been able to let go of our hatred. Isn't it amazing that our country has elected an African American president! However, it saddens me when it appears that some have voted for President Obama only for that reason! I believe that is just as prejudiced as those who would not vote for him because of the color of his skin. I will pray for our President. I will pray that he can see the wrong in the killing of innocent babies. I will pray that he can hear God's Word and be moved to act in a way that is accordance with it. I want to see him do well, even though I did not vote for him. I also pray that people take the time to know the facts, to know what he really stands for. How well he speaks, how wondeful his family life seems to be, and the color of his skin do not make a good President. The issues and the decisions he makes regaurding them are the things that will bring about change in this country.
