Presiding Bishop on the inauguration of Barack Obama

Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori offers the following statement on the inauguration of Barack Obama as President of the United States:

As Episcopalians, we pray for the President of the United States each time we gather for worship. In the years ahead, we will continue to pray for President Barack Obama, for his wise and inspired leadership and that he may know himself as a beloved child of God. May he both guide this nation and be a partner in leading the world to a greater justice for all.

We give abundant thanks for his historic election, and pray that his ministry may encourage others in the prophetic search for a just and peaceful world.
