This past Sunday at church, we were having altar call prayer when the woman speaking starting praying for our president. If you go to a black church, this is probably nothing out of the ordinary: “Lord, please bless our president, Bah-ROCK Obama.” The next sentence was a little bit more unorthodox. “And Lord, I know I may step on a few toes with this one but please bless Mitt Romney because we know he’s a little confused right now.”
Even though, it would seem like that sentiment would be unpopular, there were several people who chuckled, grunted, and nodded their head in agreement. It’s true.
If we’re to judge by Romney’s recent actions and even his statements to his supporters and fundraisers, it would seem that he’s pulling for all kind of straws, looking for a way to explain his second presidential defeat. I mean this is the same man who allegedly didn’t have a concession speech on election night, the same man who’s said that President Obama only won the election because he was handing out “gifts” to voters. If you were to ask me his ego, elitism and even entitlement is suffering a huge blow right now. So while I’m glad he didn’t win, for the sake of the country, I’m not opposed to sending up a prayer for him, in hopes that this election will help him become a better man.
