Our Father who is in Heaven....
I consider myself a God Fearing man.
I believe in Jesus. I believe he is the son of my God. I pray through him to my God every day I wake up. I pray for my family, my continued health, the health of my loved ones. I pray for his will to be done. I pray for HIS kingdom to be established.
That is why I did not pray for his O-ness to be elected President.
I felt it would be wrong to pray for a man made "kingdom" to be established. I have no trust in man, so why would I offer my prayers to see a man become "king"?
I told a cat this at work and he said I was wrong. He said I should have prayed that this man became president because of all the hell our people have gone through.
What the hot ass hell does that have to do with who becomes president?
I did not say that I did not pray for Big O's overall welfare, because with the threats that he is getting on a daily basis,he is going to need all the prayers he can get.
But I feel praying for the up keep of any man made institution is wrong.
I don't know if I am a Christian or not, since I have never been officially baptised into any man's church.
Besides, with the mistakes I have made, and what I know I am capable of doing now, I feel I am not too "Christ-like".
But I do know who God is and I know what he has done and will do for me.
To me praying for Obama to become President is like praying for the Cowboys to beat the Deadskins.
Or praying that my lottery numbers hit.
It just don't seem right to me.
So did any of yall pray that Obama would win?
