There been a whole lotta people up in arms about Pastor Wiley Drake and the fact that he prays the prayers that God wants him to pray. If you’re a Christian then you already know what it’s like to be down on your knees in front of an abortuary praying that the negress about to lynch her pre-born either repents or is struck dead in her when some butt-in-ski comes along and kicks you in the head. We’re used to have heathen spit on us and abuse us. But they can’t abuse our Love for the Lord who gives us the full armor of God so we may stand against the devil’s wiles.
If you’re a Christian, you prolly also had some homo protester sticking his wicked face into yours, screaming semen-scented profanities at you and whining about how “Jesuth lovesth EVerbody, even great big faggotsth like meeeeeee.” Of course, if you try to tell ‘em that Jesus love only those who love him first they get all huffy, plug their ears and start singing Judy Garland songs.
Judy Garland is the patron saint of all homosexuals due, in
large part, to the drug inspired movie, The Wizard of Oz. In it,
she befriends a number of freaks which many see as condoning
the Homosexual lifestyle.
What I’m trying to get at here, is that heathen ain’t got no understanding of what it means to be a Christian let alone the first thing about praying. So when Pastor Wiley Drake says that he’s praying for the death of Barack Osama Homo bin Laden, they don’t get that he ain’t talking about killing the fake president – he’s asking GOD to kill the fake president because GOD told him to pray that prayer.
As to imprecatory prayer, Pastor Drake said it better than I could -
“This whole concept that we’re always to pray little, nice, soft, fluffy, prayers — that we’re not to pray imprecatory prayer — has been something that just, in all honesty, that Southern Baptists have lost, and we need to regain imprecatory prayer,” Drake said. “It is in the Bible, and we are proud to say as Southern Baptists that we believe the Book. You’ve got to believe the whole Book, brother, or you don’t believe any of it.”
This is The Holy Bible. It is the inerrant Word of God.
We pray to You, oh Lord, to burn out the eyes of the
unsaved who gaze in mockery on this, Your law.
The fact is that if God wants something, you’d be stupid not to pray for it. If God wants a rainbow, then you pray for a rainbow. If God wants to give you the money to detail your Humvee then you pray for the money to detail your Humvee. If God wants to kill an evil, genocidal maniac who assassinates the late-term pre-borns just so some 14 year old could go to a Jonas Brothers concert and get pregnant again, then that’s what you pray for.
It ain’t rocket science, folks.
How many sinful, wicked people did God send
to Hell in this picture? Only He can really answer
that question, but it’s most likely more than one.
Y’all might wonder about why it’s called “imprecatory prayer”. That’s cuz imprecation means “a prayer that a curse or calamity may fall on any one”. Some folks say that it ain’t right to pray for a curse but those folks ain’t read the Bible and have sex in public restrooms. There’s plenty of places in the Bible where folks offer up an imprecatory prayer because God wants them to. King David did a heckuva job on Psalms 35!
Even though God wants us to use imprecatory prayer, we ain’t supposed to overdo it. You can’t go around praying for God to destroy every single person in Homobama’s cabinet cuz 1) that’d be taxing on God’s patience and 2) it’d take a long time. In that case, it’s probably better to do like Jesus and cast a wide net by asking God to destroy all the wicked people in Washington.
As we are made in His image, God’s time, like ours, is
too valuable to waste with needless and repetitive
prayers. Remember: Think twice, pray once.
I wanna give Jay Horsely the last word. He got a real good article on imprecatory prayer. He points out that you can’t (and what Christian even could) pray
not with a vengeful and hateful heart, but rejoicing in the Lord. This type of prayer is not simply from a desire to harm others, but to have the Lord help stop their evil. When this happens, the joy that we have in the Lord is greatly refreshed.
We hope that we never need to pray for the Lord to punish evildoers who are harming us, but sometimes that is the only way to find relief. Righteous imprecatory prayer is the last hope of the patient, innocent, faithful saint.
Use of this type of prayer may not be a pleasant thought, but the grave sin of evil men spoils many things. Imprecatory prayer is one of the helps God extends to us in times of such need.
So use it wisely and don’t forget to cheerfully pray for God to destroy all the wicked people in Washington D. C.!
God is Love!
