This simplifies our lives in a couple ways.
The first way is we don't have to listen to campaigning for the next two years or so.
The second way is that no matter who gets elected, the expectation is the same for what we need to do:
1 Timothy 2:1–4 (NIV)
2 I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people—2 for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. 3 This is good, and pleases God our Savior, 4 who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.
It's pretty simple: for all those in authority. So whether, Obama or Romney won, the imperative stands. Also people are often confused about the will of God. Well, Paul makes it clear here that praying for those in authority is good and pleases God. Sounds like the will of God to me.
Not a long blog post, but it doesn't need to be. Pray for the President. Pray for our Congress. Pray for our Supreme Court. Pray as far down the ladder as you are willing and able. They all need the prayer and you'll be pleasing God in doing so. I need to please God more in this way than I tend to.
