Thirty Days of Prayer

I've recently come under conviction. Although Barack Obama is ruining our great nation with every public policy decision he postulates, this does not preclude me from my responsibility to lift him up in prayer.

Starting today for thirty days, I'm committing to praying five times a day for President Obama. And I won't be praying those weak "hey, God, bless him" prayers for the Commander-in-Chief. Oh no, I'll be praying specific scriptures for the president. Yes, five times a day for thirty days, I'll be bathing Barack in Psalm 109:8, entreating the good Lord to honor this claim in the president's life.

Man, I'm spiritual! And now that's change we can believe in.

"9 May his children be fatherless
and his wife a widow.

10 May his children be wandering beggars;
may they be driven [d] from their ruined homes.

11 May a creditor seize all he has;
may strangers plunder the fruits of his labor.

12 May no one extend kindness to him
or take pity on his fatherless children.

13 May his descendants be cut off,
their names blotted out from the next generation.

14 May the iniquity of his fathers be remembered before the LORD;
may the sin of his mother never be blotted out.

15 May their sins always remain before the LORD,
that he may cut off the memory of them from the earth.

16 For he never thought of doing a kindness,
but hounded to death the poor
and the needy and the brokenhearted."

Though it is funny, the verses that follow could be confused as a wish for the following as well- which some others actually do wish- obviously not yourself. It just worries me that all of the bumper stickers and t-shirts with this tag will only make Christianity look worse to non-christians
