Prayers for the President





Politics is a scary word. You have to be afraid to
voice your opinion for fear it will be taken as
offensive. I think back to some of my children's history
lessons and realize that times haven't changed all
that much. Politics can still bring about war, anger and frustration. The complexity of it all is enough
to leave anyone exhausted and then we are to
teach it to our children so that they may not make
the same mistakes as or forefathers. Perhaps even mimic
the things that are not blemishes on the American record.
Teaching Government has not always been one of my
favorite topics but a look at the elementary level
still gives us the "Glow of American Freedom" You
are able to feel again that awe in knowing that
we are FREE compared to many others of God's family in
the world.

This week we are to come together to honor our
presidents old and new. Much has changed since those
times of Good old Abe Lincoln and George
Washington days. Our Children happen to know it.
They hear the things that people say about our
current president. They hear the disrespect we are
feeling when we do our taxes and pay the IRS. They hear
us belly ache and growl about this or that in America and
little by little we dim their lights of American Pride. Our problems in this world did not arise because one president
or another madea wrong choice.The decisions of this world
are not our own. It ispredetermined by God our father. We
are not to post Blame to them.Many good Christians worldwide
and my facebook friends often forget this.Times are hard for all but we are living what is to be God would have it
Not other way then for us to turn about and learn what we
can. I give you these two verses to ponder upon.
Titus 2:1 - 2

"Remind them to be subject to rulers, to authorities, to be obedient, to be ready for every good deed, to malign no
one, to be uncontentious, gentle, showing every
consideration for all men."





1 Peter 2:13-17

"Submit yourselves for the Lord's sake to every human
institution, whether to a king as the one in authority, or
to governors as sent by him for the punishment of evildoers
and the praise of those who do right. For such is the will
of God that by doing right you may silence the ignorance
of foolish men. Act as free men, and do not use your freedom
as a covering for evil, but use it as bondslaves of God.
Honor all men; love the brotherhood, fear God,
honor the king."




And so I bring you today's Craft for the kids......
Bring them together on this day in Prayer.


Teach them to honor our leaders. If you disagree at
times then Pray for wisdom. Pray for Gods will to be
done. Pray for financial stability of our country,
Pray forall people, Pray for our education , Choices
our law makers are making,Pray for our protection,
Laws and God leading hand.

Crafting instructions:

supplies needed:
Construction paper
Craft foam scraps
white paper
pencil
foam letters
pen

1. Cut out a heart shape from construction paper.
2. Cut shape pieces from scraps of craft foam. I do this
when I'm finished with my craft foam right away into
our shape tub.
3. Find a silhouette online. You can find one
of Obama as well as others.
4. Trace over the shadow on your laptop. You can print
it out but I simply put a piece of white paper up
to my screen and gently traced the outline.
5. Glue to heart.
6. Cut stripes of paper, glue to back of hear
7. Add prayers to stripes with foam letters or write them.


*I gave the children a few words or phrases to get
them started. They can write the entire prayer on one
stripe or one word breath prayers.




1 Timothy 2:1-2

"First of all, then, I urge that entreaties and
prayers, petitions and thanksgivings be made on
behalf of all men, for Kings and all who are
in authority, in order that we may lead a tranquil
and quiet life in all godliness and dignity."




Warm Blessings,
Nikki
