Obama in Berlin…

Feeling a bit better and finally catching up on my dose of obama news.

Barack capped his Middle-East / Europe tour with a speech to over 200 thousand people this week in Berlin.

Supposedly people from all over the continent had travelled in to see him in person.  Some of Obama’s opposition say that this proves how ‘foreign’ he is, and not suitable for leading America.  I think his global appeal says much more about the state of the world than Obama himself.

People are longing for a different America to show up.  I know I am.

Interestingly, an Israeli paper published a private prayer that Obama wrote and stuffed in the western wall.

Lord,

Protect my family and me. Forgive me my sins and help me guard against pride and despair.

Give me the wisdom to do what is right and just.

And make me an instrument of your will.

imagine that.

    When I saw the picture of him putting his prayer in the wall I wondered what it might say…then I thought…”oh well…we’ll never know, but that’s okay because it’s private!”

    Incredible that someone took it upon themselves to pull it out of the wall.

    But his words, his prayer is a beautiful one.

    I love the prayer… i wonder if it ever crossed his mind even in the slightest that someone might find a way to read what he wrote.

    it’s crazy how everything gets documented these days…

    I am not sure that the world is ready for a different America. It seems to me that the world wants America to do what is right, when America does step up, the world condemns it for intervening in stuff that is “none of its business”.

    As for Obama’s politics, I don’t know how someone can be so staunchly supportive of abortion and still pray that way towards the God who loves all of us from the moment he created our very spark of life.

    America is looking for a new leader and a new direction, but I don’t think Obama should be that leader, nor does he have a new direction.
