How Should We Pray for the President?

Ligon Duncan--who watched President Obama's inauguration with Al Mohler, Mark Dever, C.J. Mahaney, John Piper, and Thabiti Anyabwile--writes:
Many Christians find themselves profoundly conflicted because of some of the moral positions and social policies that Mr. Obama espouses. So how do you pray for your President when you disagree with him?
"Thankfully," he writes, "the Bible is not silent about such a question." Read the whole thing for his helpful thoughts.

Can I offer a suggestion? If you're like me, you'll click through, give it a skim and a nod, and then go on to the next blog post or email. But consider printing this out and sticking it in a place that you'll see it, as a prompt and guide to fulfill our biblical duty to uphold our President in prayer.
