Pray for our leaders (they need it more than they realize)

President John Adams, before he joined his wife Abigail at their new official residence in Washington, D.C. sent her a prayer, which more than a hundred years later President Franklin D. Roosevelt ordered inscribed over the fireplace in the State Dining Room: "I pray heaven to bestow the best of blessings on this house and on all that shall hereafter inhabit it. May none but honest and wise men ever rule under this roof."

Psalm 2:10 (NIV) Therefore, you kings, be wise; be warned, you rulers of the earth.
