“These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God. And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.” -1 John 5:13-15
When I was five, I prayed for a pony. It seemed like a reasonable request. From the moment I was aware of the physical world in which I lived, I understood intuitively there was a spiritual force that controlled it. But in my innocence, I didn’t understand God. I listened to the preacher on Sunday mornings and concluded God was my creator, that he loved me and that he would answer my prayers because he loved me. He never gave me a pony, but he still loves me.
Do you have unanswered prayers? My pony prayer was one of many selfish requests. As I matured as a Christian, I learned God answers prayers with yes, no and later. When I published Legally STUPiD last year, I prayed earnestly that the Lord would bless the book with a 10 to one ratio, that for every book purchased, 10 children would be rescued from the public school system. It hasn’t happened. (I suspect some folks think the message was too scary. If so, they’ll think my next book’s a nightmare.) Did the Lord answer no or later? I don’t know.
I do know the Lord answers prayers, for the key is found in 1 John 5:13-15. You probably wondered why this essay’s title was paired up with such a strong verse of faith. The answer is simple. When we pray, we have to be sure what we’re praying for is in accordance with his will.
During a recent Wednesday night prayer service, I asked for prayer for our nation. The church member chosen to pray then asked the Lord to guide how we vote November 4th. That’s not what I asked! I asked for prayer for our nation, not how we should vote. America’s future is not just bleak; it’s black. (No pun intended.)
I heard a fellah say with all sincerity that anyone who did not vote for Obama was a racist. On the contrary, it can equally be said that the majority of those who do vote for Obama-Biden are racists, and those who do not vote for McCain-Palin are chauvinists.
Whether we vote for the Libertarian candidate or the Constitution Party candidate, the simple fact is that either socialist McCain or spread-the-wealth, Commie-Obami are going to win this election. Probably the latter and with his victory, additional communist seats in the House and Senate will prove that our fellow Americans will have voted America into extinction.
Consider this prehistoric analogy:
In the beginning, most men were hunters-gatherers (conservatives). They worked each day to hunt down or gather food, which they brought back to the camp to share with their women and children. Unfortunately, there were also spoilers (liberals) in the camp, those aged, invalid and just plain lazy sots who hung around the camp for a free meal and share the spoils of others. They were a tolerated nuisance at first, for if they were too demanding, the hunter-gatherers would simply turn their spears on them, drive them out of the camp or silence them permanently.
Soon though the number of spoilers increased, some perhaps refugees from smaller camps and some the children of hunter-gatherers who saw it was easier to be served than to serve. Their demand for a larger share of the spoils could no longer be ignored for while the hunter-gatherers were out hunting-gathering, the spoilers could spoil the camp and abuse their women and children. One day, some of the hunter-gatherers collected their women and children and set out to form their own camp. But they were hunted down by other hunter-gatherers who’d allied themselves with spoilers. Many were killed, the rest forced to return to the camp and contribute to the common needs of all.
This lasted for some time until there was a boiling point. The spoilers demanded so much from the ever-decreasing number of hunter-gatherers that war broke out, this time inside the camp. Most were killed; the rest left the ruins of the old camp and formed a new one.
History repeats itself. I’ve said before I’m not a prophet, but I see two scenarios for this nation; both depict a very dark future.
If as I suspect Obama’s political beast wins November 4th, he’ll not only take the White House but add additional communists to the House and Senate. They’ll control the executive and legislative branches. He’ll appoint two ultra-liberal justices to the Supreme Court then no one will be able to check the unconstitutional legislation that flows from his rubber-stamp congress. The U.S. will become an oligarchy.
Forget about gun control. Think gun confiscation. Abortion on demand? I wouldn’t be surprised to see forced abortions on political dissidents. Talk radio, Fox television, you’re outta here. Israel, you’re on your own. Hate crime? Anyone who espouses anything contrary to That One will be guilty of hate crime. Baptists and fundamentalist Christians, they’ll find a special place for us, not unlike those nice little communities Hitler found for Jews.
Don’t worry about the economy. There won’t be one, except that your taxes will increase exponentially to support the tax cuts the Unholy Messiah promised his non-tax-paying constituents. Joe the Plummer-type small businesses will collapse around the country. Corporations will head for the hills, or more specifically, Europe and Asia. I recently learned 250,000 Americans are already leaving America every year, some to Canada, most to Central and South America, a few to Europe or the Pacific islands. Expect that exodus to double. Middle class and real working class Americans who have no means to go and nothing left to lose will take a stand and fight. Civil war!
Now suppose somehow McCain wins November 4th. The democratic news media, which has invested so much of its time and money promoting their Anointed One will not be happy. Neither will the seven of every ten African-Americans who worship His Unholiness. ACRON, ACLU, NEA, Planned Parenthood, Nation of Islam and scores of other political organizations that have plotted to rig the election will charge that any election results that favor McCain are a fraud. Don’t worry about the war on terrorism. Civil unrest will lead to civil war.

What remains for us is not simply to vote for the right person. That really doesn’t matter anymore. What Christians need to do now is pray. Pray like we’ve never prayed before. Pray for our personal sins, that we each get right with our Lord. Petition the Lord for our families, that they may be spared the wrath to come. Pray that I’m wrong about what I see as America’s future. Pray for God to personally intervene, not so much in the election results but the election aftermath. Please pray.
