For the spiritual relationship between President and Mrs. Obama to be strong and vital......
For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh. —Genesis 2:24(NIV)
Thank You, O God, that it has always been Your plan for a man to leave his parents and, with his wife, establish a new family unit. We praise You, Lord, that together the husband and wife form an inseparable union, of which “one flesh” is both a sign and an expression of its reality. This is Your purpose and Your way, and we glorify You for it.
Precious Lord, we also thank You today for the “one flesh” union of Barack and Michelle Obama, and we ask You, mighty God, to move in the life of this marriage. Help them, Lord, to grow more intimate with each other, and closer to You, as they serve our nation as president and first lady. Allow them to discover and apply the truths of Your Word, and let that empower their spiritual life as a couple. Make Yourself real to them daily, Lord, by Your great presence and love we pray, amen.
