Heavenly Father high above
shelter Obama with your eternal love.
Allow all human generations from across the nation
to come together to pray for our leader to
give peaceful worldly accommodations.
Give him Godly wisdom to direct our nation
out of terrorism’s abomination.
Sanctify the Obama party with solutions to a plan
for safety from threats to the American land.
Bless him with knowledge and a team
that can put this economic crisis
onto positive financial streams.
Continue to protect him from
the hated race
who tries to assassinate him
from the leader role you placed.
Let your will be done
through the man whose vision you
appointed to be the elected one.
Provide Obama with ongoing
knowledge to lead the states to
new changes and reclaim
the original American history
that was founded in your name.
Bestow on our leader a winning plan to
reconstruct American education
and give our children hope of aspiration.
Grant him and his party
insight of a successful strategy
to bring our troops
home from warfare tragedy.
May the war of conflict and disharmony cease;
Lord God, give our president guidance of
The first Afro-American president-
Barack Obama 2008
