Today is President’s Day. It’s the day we celebrate Lincoln and Washington’s birthday.

But I think we should really celebrate all the great Presidents. What makes a great president? To me, a great president is someone who thinks of the country more than himself. He thinks of making the country prosperous more than the wealth and power he may inherit for himself. Also, and more importantly, he lifts up God, supports prayer, and does the best he can to squash evil and corruption. Both President Washington and Lincoln did this.

I think this is also a day to think of President Trump and to pray that he would be continually focused on doing what is good for this country and to please the God of heaven. And I know that he thinks that way. Yes, he has asked for prayer that the will of God be done. I know that.

And we should pray that in all of the President’s efforts he will enact policies to rid our country of evil and evil workers. Pray that he will be working to establish justice and to promote godliness and prayer in our land.
