A Special Prayer for the President

My 4th grader recently had an assignment to write a letter to the president. She has been learning about properly formatting a letter in her schoolwork, and writing to the president is a great way to practice.

I did not prompt her in any way because I wanted to see what she would come up with on her own. I thought this would give me some insight on the perspective she has gained through listening to the many political conversations we have in our home. 

I have to say, when I read her final letter, it brought me to tears, and I asked her if I could share it here with you...such sweet and simple thoughts of a child.

Dear President Obama,

       I will be praying for your safety, your health, and your wisdom to lead our country. I pray that your heart will be soft towards God, and to not be mean to Israel.
