Thank you for all the gifts you have given me;
My beautiful wife Jenni,
My wonderful sons,
My joyful daughters.
Thank you Lord for also giving my country
a lesson it very well deserves.
I pray that You will see it through these next few years
and keep us protected from all evil,
be it from afar, or from within.
I ask you to look over and keep safe
our newly elected leader, Barack Obama.
Although, I disagree with him, I do not wish to see any harm come his way,
as that will do nothing but divide the country.
I thank you Lord for blessing my family with the opportunity
to live and grow in this great nation,
and I pray that you will keep us safe.
In your name I pray,
