I welcome you, this Inaguration morning, as Hope dances with History.
I watch as the sun rises on witnesses packed shoulder-to-shoulder, and a president-to-be ducks into a church to pray.
And I pray too, first for protection this day and all others that he serves.
For wisdom and discernment, that he would listen to the right counsel.
For courage to make the hard choices that surely face him.
For humility in the face of hero worship.
For patience, for the work ahead is surely long and will not be easy.
For gratitude for the amazing opportunity he has to be “the first.”
For his family, who joins his in this journey.
I pray, and prepare to celebrate.
And say “Good Morning, possibilities.”
