    Of course. I do on my own and someone at church always adds our leaders into prayers as well.

    The president isn't high on that list.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    I wouldn't say I pray... but I hold humanity in general in my thoughts often, so that would include Obama.

    Yes!
    And I am the one.
    I am not a praying man; for me, this works not....
    So, whatever will be, will be.
    But I do hope that things are slowly improving and that our President will be able to survive the onslaughts of ignorance and fear.

    What about people of other faiths? I'm spiritual, not religious, and do sometimes prey for Obama, though usually I prey for more broad objectives... such as world peace or aiding those who are suffering. It is my hope that those of any spiritual or religious faith prey for the president, as he is the leader of our nation, and if he fails, we fail. Even if you disagree with his agenda, you can still prey for things that we can all agree upon, such as balancing the budget or peace in the middle east or saving our economy.

    There is obviously more one can prey for than simply "I hope Obama succeeds".
    "There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, it to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution." —John Adams

    Yep. I prayed for Bush too. It's a tough job that affects all of our lives. Would of prayed for Clinton, but I didn't care about politics, and would of prayed for the first Bush too, but I was an infant

    I left it at Christians because the Bible tells them to pray for their leaders. Since so many seem to despise him, I don't know how they can do so.

    Sometimes
    I ask God to be with him and touch his heart.
    That's pretty easy because I mean it.
    I don't exactly thank God for putting him in my life, like I do other people. :-)
