Prayer for President Obama

May you be upheld and strengthened in light

so that the light of truth and of your highest vision

remains firm and bright in your heart.


May the rancor and opposition that is heard

around you have no effect on the confidence of

your heart in what you have set out to do.


May all disappointment vanish, and only light

strengthen your resolve to give all that you

can, to all who would receive.


May you remain patient and hopeful,

bearing malice toward none,

clinging only to inner truth,

knowing that light is stronger than all else,

and that if clung to steadfastly, patiently,

it will prevail.
