Not pray for our country mind you but to pray for Barack Obama himself against the evil Republicans , racists that wish to do him harm by “telling lies”( which are most likely the truth) to bring him down by opposing Obama’s health care reform package. I was instructed to say a special prayer against Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck of FOX News.
I do not attend church. That does not mean that I do not believe in organized religion. I consider myself to be spiritual. For me that means I read my Bible (occasionally) and I pray every morning when I wake up.
Among my favorite topics for prayer are support of our troops, America’s safety, good sales, my continued health, happiness and success. I suppose that someday I will die eventually and I pray that God guides me to fulfill whatever destiny or role in life he wanted me to.
On occasion, I will pray for people that I read about in the news, mostly young people who have died in violent accidents.
Upon seeing the beauty of a rainbow or a firefly, right that instant, I thank God for the miracle of nature and science.
A long time ago when President Bill Clinton “did not have sexual relations” with Monica Lewinsky, I finally got the message that leaders are flawed. Soon after, I ceased praying for specific world leaders. Instead I pray for all life and that God’s will to be done. My daily devotional routine may not be fair and certainly it will anger my acquaintance who mailed to say “pray for Obama.”
However, being the devil’s advocate that I can sometimes be, I wondered if people actually prayed for Adolph Hitler? For success in his “movement”?
Did people pray for Mussolin? Idi Amin?
It is hard to imagine but I bet someone did.
Before my readers go into a tizzy, I WANT TO CLARIFY that I am not comparing President Obama to any of the aforementioned awful dictators. Afrocity is staunchly opposed to any attempts to liken Obama to Adolph Hitler.
Two different eras, two different men.
I discourage conservatives from using those images.
President Obama’s recent whine at last Saturday’s Congressional Black Caucus Foundation dinner concerning foreign response to his critics and similarities to Hitler proves that the liberals seem to forget that their moonbat brigade often depicted George W. Bush as Hitler during many protests.
The point I am attempting to make involves my personal decision to pray or not pray for a person- particularly a world leader. From what I have seen of Obama, I am not quite certain what his full intentions are.
I am sure that America is a good country with good people that needs the support of God or whatever supreme being might be somewhere out there to lend a hand. That is what I pray for.
