Nancy Pelosi Prays for President Bush

I think everyone pretty much understands that current House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi, and President Bush aren’t the best of friends. For starters they are in different political parties and their ideologies seem to diametrically opposed.

Regardless of what one thinks of Pelosi’s ideology and/or voting record she must be commended for what she does for the President.

According to this story, “Pelosi prays “all the time” for Bush to change policies.”

A sample,

“First of all, I pray for President Bush all the time, and I pray especially hard that he would sign the children’s health bill because it’s so important for America’s children,” she said on Fox News Sunday. “I pray that he makes the right decisions for the American people.”

Perhaps Madame Speaker has read the Apostle Paul’s words to Timothy,

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, so that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and dignity.

Whether she prays for President Bush with sincerity is another question and one I’m afraid God is the only One capable of answering, but her actions remind all of us to pray for our leaders, whether or not we agree with their agendas.

What a great reminder for all us to pray for our Nation’s leaders regardless of their or our political leanings.
