I have been reading through the many blogs and articles of Christians upset that Obama will not be taking part in the National Day of Prayer Observance and find it quiet odd that many are upset by his decision. Why would President Obama have any interest in praying to God? Everything that God holds dear Obama holds in contempt. So I thought what, would he say anyway? How would he pray for God to bless and protect this nation when in from of the world he totally rejected God? In an excerpt taking from an article on the Huffington Post, Obama said this about America:
"One of the great strengths of the United States," the President said, "is ... we have a very large Christian population -- we do not consider ourselves a Christian nation or a Jewish nation or a Muslim nation. We consider ourselves a nation of citizens who are bound by ideals and a set of values."
I can now respectfully say that this President does not represent me. As a Christian I pray regularly for God to reign over this nation and that He is the LORD over the place I occupy in this nation. Now if Obama would have said, “as the leader of this nation, I can not endorse a creed or religion nor can the government establish a religion, as there are other faiths that people hold to, but as for me, I am a follower of Christ and He will be Savior over my role in this nation, that would be quiet different. I can not imagine him praying for God to protect our nation and bless us with His grace and mercy, when in order to do so he would have to confess to be a follower of Christ. A follower of Christ would never say that the nation in which He lives and governs is not a Christian nation, a nation that trusts in the atoning sacrifices of Jesus. A leader can lead his people by the principles of his or her faith without forcing those he leads to embrace said faith. So if he does not follow Jesus, he definitely can not follow God, because Jesus says, in John 14:6;
“Jesus said to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.”
As the nations leader and chief representative, he has removed this nation from receiving the blessings of Psalms 33:12 which says,
“Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, the people whom He has chosen for His own inheritance.”
Would anyone believe that this man is the same person that Rick Warren was so cozy with and who many Christians including high profile people such as TD Jakes and Tyler Perry endorse. What I see in those so-called Christian leaders who supported Obama is that they have shown a very fatal lack of wisdom. The Scriptures tell us when the blind lead the blind they both fall into a ditch. There are many Christians who are stumbling over the many bodies that lie with them in the ditch they have dug for themselves as they blindly follow Obama.
Would Obama pray for God to bless the nation with peace and prosperity? Please refer back to Psalms 33:12. Why would he pray for prosperity when he believes that the government supplies for the needs of their citizens. Oh I know, so that he can take their prosperity and redistributed it to the poor. One would think that giving to the poor is not a bad idea. Again, more signs of Obama and his liberal lefts understanding of Biblical principles.
Another case of Obama not really being one to lead this nation on such an important day as the National Day of Prayer. Paul wrote Scripture about it. Wanna see it, here ya go!
“But this I say: He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. 7 So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver. 8 And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work.”
The Scriptures say that “God loves a cheerful giver” and that we “should not grudgingly” give or give out of “necessity”. How would Obama reconcile the principles of the socialist model of income redistribution, which is the government deciding from whom and by how much one should give? I for one, can definitely understand President Obama taking a sabbatical from the National Day of prayer. I actually think that is a great idea. How would he pray about the moral condition of our country when he believes that the most precious part of God’s creation is a punishment? He would have to get around Psalms 127:3-5 which says,
“Behold, children are a gift of the LORD, the fruit of the womb is a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, so are the children of one's youth. How blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them; they will not be ashamed when they speak with their enemies in the gate.”
God says that Children are a blessing. Obama said that having a baby in ones youth is punishment. So would he pray that he and God can agree to disagree? Seems to me that this is not looking really good for President Obama or for us as the nation in which he leads. There are those of us who follow Christ that will step in to pray for the hope of this nation on the National Day of Prayer. And God will still hear and provide for us, as he does provide for those who love Him, even in spite of our leadership. It would behoove the left, however, to rethink their passion to rid the public of the presence of God and then attempt to portray themselves as faithful prayer warriors. To truly pray and have answered prayer one must have faith in Christ.
“If you ask anything in My name, I will do it. “If you love Me, keep My commandments. And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever—“”
So before my Christian brothers and sisters gets all bent out of shape about Obama’s decision to not partake in the National Day of Prayer, I say to you, as Samuel said in 2 Samuel 10:12,
“Be of good courage, and let us be strong for our people and for the cities of our God. And may the LORD do what is good in His sight.”
Then again, President Obama could read a prayer from his teleprompter. Not!
