A Prayer for a President–Psalm 109:8

Gene Lalor | September 5, 2012 

You got a problem with praying? 

If so, that’s fine in the United States of America where your freedom to pray or not pray, to practice or not practice a religion, is enshrined in our Constitution’s Bill of Rights although that enshrinement has taken some body blows from the Obama administration.  Still, despite Obama’s assaults on the Constitution, few Americans would take offense over a prayer–aside from atheists and Obama’s Secret Service. 

Pray for Obama: Another Anti Obama Billboard Stirs up Controversy | Psalms 109:8  Longtime Texas resident Milton Nietsch was inspired to offer a simple prayer for America’s beleagured president on his  Victoria, Texas billboard.  It read, ”Pray For Obama,” an invocation flanked by a drawing of hands clasped in prayer and another of the president in profile. 

It wasn’t so much those parts of Nietsch’s billboard that attracted the attention of the Secret Service as it was the references beneath them.  And, it wasn’t so much the mention of Psalm 109:8 that bothered the people charged with protecting the life and limb of the president as much as it was the verses that follow 109:8 in the Old Testament but didn’t even appear on the billboard. 

Most normal Americans would react, well, normally, to Nietsch’s innocuous, prayerful wish but, then again, life in ObamaWorld is no longer exactly normal by most traditional standards where religion and Christianity in America are under ceaseless attack. 

In ObamaWorld, government is now authorized to suspend and/or revoke our freedom to practice our religion as we see fit, religiosity is regarded by many in power as a sociological aberration, and Mitt Romney’s Mormon religion is being used in an attempt to destroy his bid for the presidency. 

Compounding America’s religious confusions, millions of Americans still believe Obama is a liar when he says he is a Christian who mainly takes his family to church during an election year.  

Obama’s Secret Service apparently has little to occupy its time so, in lieu of protecting the president from bodily harm and tracking down real dangers, became all exercised over Psalm 109:8 which reads, “Let his days be few, and let another take his office”, because of the biblical sentiments that follow that verse. 

To be totally honest, those verses are unkind to say the least but hardly worthy of becoming a federal case.

They read, “May his children be fatherless and his wife a widow.  May his children be wandering beggars; may they be driven from their ruined homes.  May a creditor seize all he has; may strangers plunder the fruits of his labor.  May no one extend kindness to him or take pity on his fatherless children.  May his descendants be cut off, their names blotted out from the next generation.  May the iniquity of his fathers be remembered before the Lord; may the sin of his mother never be blotted out.  May their sins always remain before the Lord, that he may cut off the memory of them from the earth.” 

After he and his family were threatened, Mr. Nietsch, a fine, upstanding American, said that we should “Pray for the president. He needs it” and he explained to the braindead the meaning of his sign:  It means, “Exactly what it says. Hope he’s gone soon and somebody different takes his place.” 

Nietsch indicated he might replace the billboard’s message with something akin to, ”Vote for the American.” (http://tiny.cc/gid5jw) 

  I don’t pray nearly as often as I should but when I do pray I like to think I’m praying for something that would benefit someone.  Mr. Nietsch was praying for his country with that sign.  May God bless him and his family.
