Barack Obama is the President of the United States of America

The LDS faith has something called "The Articles of Faith". These are some of the basic tenets of our faith, and one of them is:

We believe in being subject to kings, presidents, rulers, and magistrates, in obeying, honoring, and sustaining the law.

To me, this means that even though I didn't vote for Obama, I am subject to the laws of the country I live in and I should support him, pray for him, and not badmouth him....

I just wanted to say that I WILL be praying for our new President. I will support him in any way I can. I will NOT badmouth him. That doesn't mean that if he misuses his authority or breaks his Presidential Oath that I will still support him, I do not have blind faith in him... I would have voted for him if I had complete confidence in him... But I DO TRUST GOD! I trust that God is there for me. I trust that God will hear my prayers.... so I will pray for our leaders and leave the rest to God. We may not understand the reasons for all that happens in the world, but...

Romans 8:28
And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God...
