Gah, just got this from my aunt in Florida:
Prayer can move mountains, why not Obama?
Being dismayed recently when a family member of mine said to me with great resignation that Obama will take the presidency. These words came from someone who in the past has been a great prayer warrior.
What is happening was my question??? Why are we Christians settling and not issuing a battle cry and falling to our knees and taking our country back?
We allow ourselves to be stripped of the right to pray at school functions and in school, we have the 10 commandments removed from government places and are told we cannot pray in school, all the while providing public prayer places for Muslims. What in the world is going on and why are we being apathetic?
Why aren’t we praying? Our God is a mighty God who is waiting patiently for us to raise our voices to heaven to stop the tide of the anti-Christ actions in our world today. Now we find we have a charismatic candidate for president who does not respect our flag and refuses to wear one on his lapel except when it becomes politically expedient and whose own wife and pastor that he loves profess to have strong anti-white feelings, and we sit back and say “it is a given, we can do nothing.”
There has never been a time in 2000 years that we can do nothing, never a time that we must sit back and allow the evil in men’s and women’s hearts to take over our world. We should be very afraid because our apathy is leading us to perdition.
It is time for all Christian Americans to raise the battle cry and take our nation back. Maybe McCain on his own cannot defeat Obama, but our God can and He will if we take to our knees in prayer and raise a mighty cry to the heavens to “Save us O Lord.” We have the power to change the course of this election and to keep a man as suspect as Barak Obama from leading our country to who knows where with his message of “change” – a change which I fear will be away from our Christian ideals and away from Christ and further away from one nation under God.
What do I even say to that??? I don’t want to be silent and let her think I agree with this. OTOH, I don’t necessarily want to make waves. On the other other hand, I’d like to stand up for my beliefs and say that yes, I’ll be praying, too, as will lots of other people — for an Obamavictory (never mind the part about me praying to a God they don’t believe in).
I just don’t get it. What are these people so afraid of? What do they think is going to happen if Obama wins–mandatory abortions for women and forced conversions to Islam or something? Mind you, he’s never been a Muslim, so the “One Nation, Under Allah” is just preying/praying (haha, get it?) on people’s fears.
Do they think their precious daughters are going to be forced to marry “n*****s”? And what is it going to say about their faith if they pray and pray and pray, and Obama still wins? That their God doesn’t care about our presidential elections? Or that he cares more about the Christians who were praying for Obama than the ones who were praying for McCain?
