Matt Drudge: Discovering Prayer in 2013 'Changed My Life'
Breitbart ^ | 27 Dec 2013 | Tony Lee

Posted on 12/27/2013 2:23:13 PM PST by george76

"It's the year I discovered prayer," Drudge told the Wall Street Journal when asked the best thing about 2013. "It changed my life. And I didn't think my life needed changing."

“Pray harder, Matt. It’s not working...”

Your wrong, God works with each of us at our level and step by step.

My grandfather was an alcoholic when he accepted Christ. It took 9 months for God to convince him that the only way he was going to quit drinking was to hang out with a different crowd. But change came “eventually”.

It’s not clear that Drudge has accepted Christ, yet But prayer is a very good start. If he honestly seeks the Lord, he will find Him.

I’m happy for him and hope prayer brings him peace in his life. Faith is a journey that’s longer for some than for others. It’s a big thing, especially for those who live their lives in godless, secular environments like NYC. May he continue to grow in the love of God.

"Sheesh, it's a joke son."

yeah, that wasn't really clear what you meant. Still isn't. I assumed you meant that Drudge hasn't renounced his gay lifestyle. Looks like the other person took it as a personal poke at Drudge too.

Does this mean that in 2016 Drudge isn’t going to whore himself for the RINO candidate again? It was thanks to Drudge’s lies that Mitt was able to come back in Florida.

I also heard Drudge is involved in homosexual sin. Is that true?

Climbing up on Solsbury Hill
I could see the city light
Wind was blowing, time stood still
Eagle flew out of the night
He was something to observe
Came in close, I heard a voice
Standing stretching every nerve
Had to listen had no choice
I did not believe the information
[I] just had to trust imagination
My heart going boom boom boom
“Son,” he said “Grab your things,
I’ve come to take you home.”

To keepin’ silence I resigned
My friends would think I was a nut
Turning water into wine
Open doors would soon be shut
So I went from day to day
Tho’ my life was in a rut
“Till I thought of what I’d say
Which connection I should cut
I was feeling part of the scenery
I walked right out of the machinery
My heart going boom boom boom
“Hey” he said “Grab your things
I’ve come to take you home.”

When illusion spin her net
I’m never where I want to be
And liberty she pirouette
When I think that I am free
Watched by empty silhouettes
Who close their eyes but still can see
No one taught them etiquette
I will show another me
Today I don’t need a replacement
I’ll tell them what the smile on my face meant
My heart going boom boom boom
“Hey” I said “You can keep my things,
they’ve come to take me home.”

I have especially appreciated his stand for the unborn and the links to the atrocities to the little babies. He puts the news out there that the general public does not even begin to know about and in a timely manner. May God Bless Drudge and may he grow in the Lord. We are all sinners saved by grace. If you want to be humbled and start the new year out right watch the New Testament on DVD in a room all by yourself, reflecting on each chapter. I am. http://superstore.wnd.com/video/Bible/The-WATCHWORD-BIBLE-The-New-Testament-10-DVD-Set

May God Bless you all in the New Year!

To one and all:

It’s not a poke at Drudge for any perceived or actual event in his life. Geez, where did I insinuate anything about his being gay?

It is, simply: Please, EVERYONE — PRAY HARDER, VOTE MORE OFTEN, Nuke Washington D.C. or whatever you can to get us out of the mess we’re in. It’s getting worse nearly every day. What we’re doing is not working.

Or just continue to jump on me for making a slightly wry remark that you’re assigning all kinds of unintended meanings to.

I strongly urge anyone suffering, lost, or otherwise in need to pray to Christ. Do it!

Prayer changed my life in 1961.

I was 9 years old and I got sick of being forced to pray to something before every meal, going to bed at night and in church several times, every time the church was open.

As soon as I was able to escape in 1970, I did so and have been happy ever since.

“Sheesh, it’s a joke son. As in “See how swell things are going for conservatives and the country?” (rolls eyes)”

You see, in that instance DJ made sure the “joke” was clearly understood as a joke by adding “(rolls eyes)”.

DJ does not “get it”, in that DJ does not get it that in the flat one-dimensional, no face, no facial expression, no evident emotion way that communication takes place in this sort of venue, it is not AUTOMATIC that a “joke” is understood to be a joke, when the text alone can just as easily be taken seriously because the authors INTENT is not self-evident in the text.

When deliberately trying to make a joke, I try to remember to place the text “/sarc” at the end of my comment, to avoid any misunderstanding. If I forget that and my intent is misundestood, I do not respond with a “Sheesh” comment, because NOT being CLEAR that it is a joke is my fault, not the readers.

So what about Matt’s sin— it’s between him and the Lord, just like liars, adulterers, thief’s and murderers. The fact that he is saying prayer has been instrumental to him, tells me the Lord and Holy Spirit are working on Matt....How many us have strayed from the Lord over our lives? How many us were sinful before giving our hearts to Christ?

Look at what the Lord did for Saul, who became Paul....then King David, who committed adultery, had her husband killed, and was forgiven and became one of the Greatest Kings of Israel.

Jennifer Knapp’s lyrics from that time period are some of the best and her voice is just amazing.

From Fall Down:

Judge Me Not Ye Saints
For My History May Be Tainted
But I’m Sober Enough To Know Blood When I See It
I’ve Borne My Share Of Stones
Most Of Them Easily Thrown
But Who’s To Deny
Your Water-Shed Side
Leading Me Home?

I haven’t clicked on his page after what he did to Newt...don’t intend on going there any time soon.

Is it clear that it is even Christian prayer Matt discovered, though? Usually, for Christians, one might hope to discover Jesus the Christ first and prayer to Him, second. Just wondering to whom he prays, I guess. You never know these days.

I’m pretty sure Matt Drudge is Jewish, almost positive, funny how everyone thinks he’s praying in the Christian sense.
