Inauguration Day Ponderings
More than our President is called to take an oath

by Greg Asimakoupoulos
January 20, 2017

Place your left on the Bible
and raise your right hand.
Will you solemnly pledge you will pray
for one far-from-perfect
who nonetheless takes
the oath of his office today?

Please vow to use knee mail
(while Mr. Trump tweets).
Then text prayer requests to your friends.
This President needs us
to seek Divine help
all the while we're confessing our sins.

Let's pray for this leader
who causes us angst
by the outlandish things that he says.
Ask God to confront him
with the Book neath his hand
lest the theme of his term be "Les Mis."

It's not just 'The Donald'
who's called to take vows.
God's calling His people to pray
for a nation divided,
our new President
and the conflicts that stand in his way.
