Obama’s Private Prayer

Browsing through the various news sites available on the internet, I came across an article by Time.Com that really got me thinking. This was about a private prayer by Senator Barack Obama, whichwas made public in Jerusalem. What got me thinking was the content of the prayer.

The prayer began with a plea for protection. It was quite a profound prayer actually. Just repeating it aloud made me grow still… I do not know much about the Senator; I have not read any of his books; but that prayer gave an insight into a man who has a personal relationship with his maker and acknowledges his human frailties.

He asked for help to guide against pride and despair. Pride and Despair; two sisters of the same mother. They walk hand in glove and are rarely seen far from each other. Where Pride goes, her sister, Despair usually follows.

Pride isolates. It is that place where no one can reach you with the truth; where everything becomes obscured by your own peculiar bifocals. . . And because we were made to interact and to co-depend, that state of isolation naturally, generates despair. That is why the Bible says that Pride goes before destruction and a haughty spirit before a fall (Proverbs 16:18, NLT).

Finally, Obama ends the prayer by asking to be made an instrument of the Divine Will. And that, is the sum total of our presence here on earth – to do the will of the Lord.

Here is the Prayer according to Maariv, which ran a photo of the Prayer:

Lord, protect my family and me, Forgive me my sins and help me guard against pride and despair. Give me the wisdom to do what is right and just. And make me an instrument of your will.

  1. God said to Israel

    If thou shalt say in thy heart these nations are more than I, then how can I dispose of them? If we say our problem is greater than what Jesus did for us at Calvary, then we are not walking in faith. Our problem might be sickness, sin or financial, but whatever it may be, we are to trust God to bring us through.

    For the Bible says, “ Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all” So, confess God’s Word, stand on God’s Word and see yourself delivered.

    The Ark will keep out the water, the Red Sea will part, Goliath will fall, the walls of Jericho will come tumbling down, because Jesus Christ has risen, He has won the victory. So, child of God, have faith, live by faith, for Jesus said,

    “I will never leave you or forsake you”.

  2. Obama’s decoded prayer at the prayer wall is The Sanhedrin Mystery Force Oath. Translated, the prayer reads:

    I bind myself not to betray my brothers
    I bind myself to follow principles and decrees
    I bind myself to work for an increase in it’s members
    I bind myself to attack whoever follows the teachings of Jesus
    I bond myself to secrecy.

    The Freemasons are the anti Christ, and their philosophy is embedded in Sanhedrin denial of Jesus.
