Joel Hunter is the pastor of Northland Church in Florida. He is also a spiritual advisor to President Obama. In the July/August 2012 issue of Relevant magazine, he was asked what is the best way to pray for our president. His answer…

Three ways. First, pray for his family and the country. The president cares more about them than he cares about his own life.

Second, pray for his relationship with God. He is a human being who needs God’s love and guidance in his life like we all do.

And third, pray for wisdom. The decisions he faces every day are overwhelming; he is well aware of his need for God’s wisdom (p. 24).
