    A friend of mines family member observed this bumper sticker on a car while he was stuck in a Frieday evening traffic jam. It said, pray for Obama per this Scripture.

    I found it entertaining, and I'm sure many of you will too!:laugh:

    Psalm 109:8~"Let his days be few; and let another take his place of leadership." :praying:

    It's takes a sick mind to come up with such a bumper sticker, a sick mind to place it on one's vehicle, and a sick mind to think it is funny.

    Just read that verse in context. No one who is a Christian should think that it is funny.

    Oh brother. Lighten up, Ken.


    I haven't forgotten the praise you had for the man and his policies.

    Better to praise a man than to wish for his death.

    It's takes a sick mind to come up with such an interpretation.

    I took it as "Let his days as President be few; and let another take his place of leadership."

    His days as President could be few if...

    He is not re-elected...
    He is impeached...
    He is proven to have been born in Kenya...

    Psalm 109:8
    Let his days be few; and let another take his office.
    9
    Let his children be fatherless, and his wife a widow.
    10
    Let his children be continually vagabonds, and beg: let them seek their bread also out of their desolate places.
    11
    Let the extortioner catch all that he hath; and let the strangers spoil his labour.
    12
    Let there be none to extend mercy unto him: neither let there be any to favour his fatherless children.
    13
    Let his posterity be cut off; and in the generation following let their name be blotted out.

    Too bad for you that the bumper sticker did not include all of the above.

    What Side of the Bed Did You Get Up On?

    Ken,

    There was no intent to be sick...and no intent to offend your man in the big house....Oops! I meant WH. Anyways, I think most of us don't want any harm to come to Obama, we just pray that he be a ONE TERM POTUS. No harm, no foul....right?:thumbs: Fogive me? :tear:

    In essence it did for those who have read the entire Bible.

    As one whom God has also forgiven as He has you, yes, I do.

    It's an eminently appropriate prayer for an evil usurper.

    Yeah, let's just ignore the fact that most of the Americans who voted voted for Barack Obama.

    Why expand the verse to just the chapter - why not the whole book or the whole Bible.

    The bumpersticker said what it said... it is you that is adding to it and reading into it what it did not say.

    OK, Mr. bible reader, you may be familiar with this verse.....

    A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.

    My thought is someone should have been praying this prayer, most fervently, about Joseph Kennedy.

    I think a more appropriate pair of verses for a bumper sticker directed toward President Obama would be:

    1 Timothy 2:
    1 I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;
    2 For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.

    Yes, I am. There are many, many things in my life that disturb me. I am so very grateful for the grace and mercy of God my Father for without Him I would be totally undone.

    You really think that all of that would fit on a bumper sticker?

    Really?

    I said it would be more appropriate. I didn't say it would fit.
