I got this message from a particularly close friend, and pass it on for those who find that it resonates. It resonates with me, particularly in light of what I know of the terrible troubles Abraham Lincoln went through, and what I know of the power of spiritual intervention in world affairs.

Subject: for our President
A message came in last night that Obama needs our prayers, not our worries and disappointments. And that through your network this word can get spread. And that I’m not the only one getting this message. (So I shouldn’t feel that I’m trying to “make a hole in the ocean” as the Greeks expression for fruitless activity goes.) We need not judge his capabilities by apparent results, which are anyway better than he gets credit for. His intentions and abilities are good, the times are terrible, and the opposition intractable and cunning.
