If for some reason you can't be on, just do it where you are. we can all convene here on this  thread after( about 9:30). Pray or meditate as long as you like or as short as you like, whatever you are comfortable with.

Thanks, Hope


Okay with me. Thanks

Anyone is free, of course, to pray for anyone you wish, along with a prayer for the Obama administration.  To help everyone with the actions of the RFO administration concerning this matter, I am copying and pasting my message from the prayer thread here:


Due to this announcement, as posted by the RFO administration, we will need to make an alteration in the public post of prayers and meditations:


<In an effort to respect the privacy of the family during this time, the admin has decided to remove the tributes and discussions pertaining to our former member. 

Thank you all for your understanding during this trying time>

We should go ahead with our plans for a prayer this Friday, focusing on, as Hope said, " a positive outcome for Obama's Presidency, and hope that people who are negative will see the light", as this was the original purpose of the gathering.

Let us also use this opportunity to pray for all those who have fought and suffered for our country during these and other  wars,  serving with honor and dignity.




it's time
Present is I


Prayers for the President-Elect and his family.  Wisdom for him and guidance for his administration.  

Yes America Can!  Yes America Did!


I am here now and have been thinking of and praying for our friend over the past few day often. 
me too, I prayed for our friend, Obama & family's safety, for the country to get back on track and move forward in a new(for the people) direction. That this presidency will be great and with good results, that people will stop hating others, and for you & your husband.    

I could feel the warmth of the unified prayers and good thoughts.  I prayed for Obama and his presidency..for wisdom as he leads us, and  for God to touch his heart,mind, body and soul.  And for his safety and for his family. 

I also prayed for all who have served our nation and their families, and for God to touch the hearts of those who hate. And I prayed for the well being of all here and their families.

God bless you all. 

God Bless you too, Suzi. I forgot about that, I also prayed for all of you too and thanked God for bringing this site to me.
I prayed for everyone in the world, no matter what ethnicity, race, gender, religion, political beliefs, etc. And a special prayer for our incoming president, no 44, Barack H. Obama.  His name is quite different from the names of our previous 43, but I believe he will make a good commander-in-chief.

I lit a white candle, and it is still burning.  I feel a real peace right now.  Does anyone else?

You know, I was also able to let go of a lot of my anger at the current administration, knowing that in another world or life,  if not this one, justice will somehow be served.   That doesn't lessen my disapproval, it just eases my heart.

I do, I don't know if it is from our prayer, because I feel a little more each day since Nov 4. As it gets closer, I feel change coming. I've had about 6 yrs of this stress, sometimes I think I carry the weight of the world on them. I sometime wish I could just snap my fingers and make everything all better for everyone. 

Tonight I prayed for unity and collective courage as we face the challenges ahead. I pray for every soldier and their families. I pray for our servicemen and women who have suffered injury, face mental health issues and those who have sacrificed their lives. I pray that God protects President Obama and his family and guides his every decision, no matter how difficult.

On a positive, I also give thanks for the plane/Hudson River miracle, the bravery and human spirit that radiated brightly and saved so many lives. Those moments remind me of how precious life is and remind me to hug my son and daughter a little tighter.
