His “success” will result in the transformation of the USA into the USSA...

We don’t need to pray for Obama being a failure, he living proof of AA in America.

hell yes I hope he fails.

His “success” means America becomes collectivized, worshippers of graven images of the One, morally indifferent to the unborn, hostile to free speech and free open practice of religion, believers in appeasement as our basic tenet of diplomacy, and socialist or worse.

My prayer has been and will continue to be that Obama would turn to God, choose righteousness and to abide by the Constitution. If he doesn’t, he will be a failure anyway, it’s that simple. It may appear to the left that he is succeeding (socialism, abortion on demand, gays in military, high taxes, gay marriage), but America will fail.

In order for him to have done this in the first place, we are already there. Kind of a moot point now.

If anything, pray for him to "succeed". To get his radical, idiotic, socialist agenda rammed through. The shock of it may finally wake people up to what they are doing.

This is one of those things that gives Conservatives a bad name, folks.

Pray he fails as President?

Sorry, I can’t do that, and I don’t understand how anyone can be that craven.

I wish him well because he’s my President, and its my country he’s leading for the next 48 months.

I don’t agree with the man on any given political topic. I think he’s a lightweight Chicago hack without a single significant accomplishment beyond winning an election over a man - John McCain - that was a pathetic nominee by the Republican Party.

But pray for him to FAIL?

Aren’t we better than that?

I’m not going to register on WND to vote, but I will submit my choice:

Other

I will pray for Obama to convert to Christianity (he is currently a secular humanist posing as a Unitarian but claiming to be a Christian with a “healthy skepticism of organized religion”) and see the error of his policies on abortion and socialism. I don’t pray for his failure, I pray for his conversion. I pray for America’s protection, that we are saved by God’s grace from the nation “we deserve” for voting for the liberal Marxist.

I cannot find where Paul admonishes us to pray for only those in authority over us with whom we agree, or even says we can refrain from praying for those whom we think are fundamentally dangerous.

Paul puts absolutely no qualifications on his admonition to pray for all in authority, including rulers: "I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour" (I Timothy 2:1-3).

Sorry, but I don't see any back door or escape clause there. Certainly the rulers and kings of Paul's day were vastly worse than anyone we ever have had, or now have, in authority here. Paul says a great deal about how you should pray for such people, but it is all positive, in terms of praying for their wisdom, revelation of the Lord, and so on.

He says in Romans 13:1 "Let every soul be sugmect to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God. (2) Therefore whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, . . . ." and so on.

Folks, I really wish that wasn't in there. But I'm not going to deny that it is, or willfully disobey it because I don't happen to like the "authority."

When you say, “fail”, what exactly do you mean.

If you mean fail at promoting his socialist agenda, then by all means, I say yes.

But I certainly don’t want him to fail when it comes to protecting this country.

My EXACT hope, along with my sister(s) and mother.

I would be the FIRST to shout praise for Obama IF he would become a righteous leader—, help restore morality to the US, and protect this country from harm and collapse.

Yeah...I know I dream big

But God IS bigger than my dreams.

Someone on TV and I wish I could remember who it was said that today is the death of the nation as a capitalist nation and by the time it is over with (President Chimpy my name for him) we will be a socialist democracy..no longer a republic..I think it was Dick Morris that said something to this effect on either O'R or Hannity last night.

Nope, no prayers for him in any way. I just pray to God to protect my family and country from madmen, and if God deems that Obama is one, then he’ll take care of it (or inspire us to take care of it).

So you pray for Obama to fail because Americans need to wake up.

And this makes sense to you?

Would your prayers not be better sent out to the people that need to wake up? You know, maybe that they would see the world more as you would like? As in, prayer for a positive outcome?

Would your prayers not be better snet out to Obama himself, that he may see the world more as you like? As in, prayer for a positive outcome.

Instead, you pray to your God for something negative. Failure. (and yes I did read the article, and yes, I know that Farah just wants the policies to fail).

From my earthly perspective, pretty agnostic at that, I see God scratching his head, thinking that this is not quite what he intended prayer for. JMO.

Since Obama wants (or should I say “hopes”? :) to accomplish things that are bad for my nation, of course I want him to fail. Thus when I pray for God to protect my country, I am by definition praying for Obama’s failure.

I’m for America succeeding, regardless of who is in the White House.

BUT... no way do I want the marxist-leninist occupying it after today to have one iota of success, because “success” to him means socialism on the Euro model at best and the Soviet one at worst.

I pray that he will not be successful in implementing his ungodly and unconstitutional idiology. I pray he makes wise decisions and that our nation is kept safe. If he is judged to be successfull, but his anti-life, anti-constitution, anti-economy, anti-military don’t get implemented, then so be it.

Anything less is failure in my book.

THAT WE MAY LEAD A QUIET AND PEACABLE LIFE IN ALL GODLINESS AND HONESTY

We can pray for Obama and against his agenda.

I sometimes pray for his confession, repentance, contrition, resignation.

I certainly pray that he fall in the pit he has dug; that he and all those putting him in power receive in their bosom and networks the evils they have scheduled to foist on our Nation 10 and 100 fold ASAP.

I pray that all their schemes fall to the ground impotent.

I pray that OThuga humiliates himself horrifically.

I pray God protects all those who love Him.

Who said anything about glory? All I saw there was obedience. Read the verses and tell me, honestly, if you see any escape clauses in there?

There is a big difference in Christians saying, "I don't like what scripture says and I intend to sin because I disagree," and another thing to fool yourself into thinking sin isn't sin.

No hate involved except to hate evil; to hate satan; to hate evil deeds.

In terms of hating OThuga . . . he’s not that substantive. He’s not worth that much emotion.

Because I LOVE my country more than I "hate" my political enemies, if thats what you want to call them, I pray that AMERICA succeeds, first and foremost. Then, I hope that O himself fails in some way that would NOT hurt America. Then I hope he loses the Presidency along with the Democrats losing control of Congress.

I WILL NOT stoop to the depths of the left, who hate this country and what it stands for, therefore they pray that Republican presidents fail , even if they drag the country down with it..

His “success” will result in the transformation of the USA into the USSA...

Have you considered that he was elected in order to help fulfill the prophesy in the Book of Revelation. There's going to be a war between the Muslims and Israel, and the US is not going to be a player. Maybe he was put in place to sideline us.

If, in fact, it is the end times you'd better be praying for your soul and your loved ones. I suspect that Obama may have already sold his soul to the Devil and be beyond redemption.
